Raspberry Christmas Panna Cotta
Raspberry Christmas Panna Cotta is a quick and easy summer’s dessert to celebrate Christmas. Just as the White chocolate and Nougat Semifreddo, this panna cotta can be made in advance. You just pop it in the fridge to set and off you go! The beautiful red colour of the raspberry coulis on top adds to the perfect colour of your Christmas table. Panna cotta is a classical Italian dessert and you can play around with all the different variations of it. You don't need to be a professional chef or cook to be able to make this beautiful, seductive and creamy dessert. I can definitely recommend to use vanilla pods/ vanilla beans to make the basic panna cotta. The flavour of the vanilla pods/beans are waaayyyyy better than vanilla essence. And with the small seeds, it just looks so much better on the festive eye! During the festive season raspberries and strawberries are in abundance - especially Woolworth's berries last much longer than other local supermarkets from my experience. It looks extra beautiful if you make these raspberry Christmas panna cotta in the original panna cotta forms. Another tip when making these, please use gelatine powder instead of the sheets. The powder is much easier to work with and to measure than the sheets. If you follow the gelatine instructions carefully you will also most likely not find that your panna cotta top has made a layer of see through gel. This happens when you work wrong with the gelatine. And it didn't blend well into the mixture.
