Classic Panna Cotta Recipe

Panna cotta is often served at special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. It’s also great for entertaining guests because it’s simple to prepare and looks beautiful on a table. Panna Cotta translates to ‘cooked cream’ and it was not mentioned in the cookbooks up until the 1960s. It is considered a traditional dessert of the northern Italian region of Piedmont.

Classic Italian Panna Cotta is made only with cream, however as people’s tastes changed, now it is more common to use a combination of milk and cream. Milk makes Panna cotta lighter and also healthier. For the topping you can use berries, fruits, marmelad, caramel or even no topping if you like.

Panna Cotta tastes deliciously creamy, is silky smooth and just melts in your mouth.
