Panna cotta

Panna cotta is an Italian classic, maybe the most popular dessert and well known all over the world. But not everybody knows that it is as popular as easy and quick to make.

I love this dessert and the great thing about panna cotta is that this is the perfect do-ahead dessert. You can make it up to two days ahead and keep them well-covered and chilled.

Panna cotta pairs well with fresh fruit, or with berries sauce (like the one we are going to show you here), or chocolate sauce, or caramel sauce or… as you can imagine the pairing possibilities are endless.
