Panna Cotta is a romantic sounding Italian dessert meaning "cooked cream." A traditional Italian dessert, it can be spiced in many ways and dressed up with fresh, macerated or pickled fruit. Modern cooks use gelatin to achieve a solid creamy product. Similar to cooked flans and custards, panna cotta is far easier to make and can sit overnight in the refrigerator just waiting for breakfast.
