For the ricotta pudding: put the gelatine in cold water for 15 minutes. Put the ricotta, the cream, sugar, vanilla, grappa and lemon zest in a large bowl. Place the bowl in a pot containing water so that the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl and cook the ricotta in a water bath, stirring frequently, to obtain a cream (There can also be lumps, the important thing is that the ingredients mix and the cottage cheese loses its solid shape. Add the isinglass well squeezed and mix thoroughly until complete dissolution. Whip the cream with the Blender until smooth and homogeneous. Pour the cream cheese into molds of your choice and allow to cool, then refrigerate for at least 6 hours, so that the puddings will harden and anyway until ready to serve.
If you use agar agar, dissolve in a little cold cream and then merge it with the other ingredients, then bake in a water bath and proceed as per previous instructions.
For the Strawberry Compote, put into a pan fresh strawberries, well washed and cut into pieces. Add the sugar and lemon juice and cook over low heat for a few minutes: you'll get a little syrupy sauce, but the strawberries will be boiled enough.
Composition of the ricotta pudding with meringue and strawberries: unmold pudding passing flush with the blade of a knife between the pudding and the mold. Put on the bottom of each dish (I suggest you use the pouches) a little strawberry compote, place a disc of meringue or sponge cake (or a cookie) and over the meringue the ricotta pudding. Garnish the ricotta puddings with fresh strawberries and a little mint and serve immediately. Bon appétit!
