Mon ami, today we enjoy the sweet taste of Panna Cotta from nord de l’italie.  Ah, le plaisir is abundant in this one, no?  Sweetened cream-like custard aromatisé with vanilla, coffee, or fresh fruit!

Attention, s’il vous plaît, let us prepare les ingrédients:

  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons powdered gelatin
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Other toppings of choice

Anatole’s instructions:

  • Pour milk into bowl and mix gelatin per package instructions, then set aside for 5-10 min.
  • Over a medium heat, mix and stir heavy cream and sugar in your most trusted saucepan.
  • Bring mixture to full boil and pour in milk/gelatin mixture.  Be sure to mix thoroughly until gelatin is dissolved.
  • Cook for one minute while continuing to stir.
  • Remove saucepan from heat and pour into appropriate dishes that make a grande présentation!
  • Let your masterpiece cool uncovered for 4 hours and place in réfrigérateur over night.
  • Enjoy with favorite toppings.
