Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta is an ideal dessert for a dinner party where you have lots of mains to keep you busy. You can prepare it the day before and even then it is fairly easy to make. Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert made simply by mixing cream, sugar and gelatine. It is like a creamy jelly but a bit more sophisticated. Vanilla plays a big part in the flavours and make sure you use vanilla extract (not essence)..better still try with vanilla pods.

In this recipe we combine the panna cotta with a pomegranate jelly topping.
