Panna cotta with cherries and lemon, the cake to the perfect spoon, soft, greedy, with seasonal fruit and elegant. The panna cotta is a sweet Italian dishes that I have always found it a bit’ trivial, especially when it is submerged by 'topping’ industrial-based chocolate sauce, caramel or strawberry as happens in most restaurants.
This panna cotta but has that certain something of detail that fascinates: first of all has the fresh taste of lemon, It is accompanied by a frost a soft and delicious cherries and is fringed by many caramelized and luscious cherries with their syrup. Overall, the taste too sweet and always a little’ heavy the panna cotta is mitigated and exalted by the freshness of lemon and the acidity of the cherries (I used those dark and thick, and even the cherries would be perfect).
Since we are in the season of cherries you might try, even if you can follow the same recipe using other fruits like strawberries, apricots or prunes. If you love the panna cotta from the particular taste, also check out the panna cotta with caramelized pears Porto or that, refined and elegant, at white chocolate and passion fruit.
