Panna cotta is a creamy, delicate and lusciously smooth pure goodness, Served in a eye-catching glass with a sweet and summery strawberry sauce
Let’s face it. When the weather warms up, who wants to spend too much time in the kitchen baking and sweating next to a hot oven. But there is no reason to give up making amazing desserts just because of the heat. I am NOT going to … no matter what the thermometer reads!
Panna cotta is laughably easy and fast to whip up. It’s a traditional, classic Italian dessert. And as the name suggests (“cooked cream”) it just involves bringing to a slow boil a mixture of heavy cream, milk and a couple of other ingredients. No baking in the oven!
The only problem I have with this dessert is that I need to be a bit patient before tasting it… And we all know patience is not my forte, especially when we are talking about a mouthwatering and rich dessert like this one. Panna cotta needs at least two to three hours (or longer) in the refrigerator to set and chill. No going around that! But trust me, it’s worth the wait:)
