Buffalo-milk Panna cotta at 5 spice with Strawberry coulis and ginger: Today a dessert recipe, fresh and delicious, made with an ingredient I have experienced in recent months (Do not worry, You can do so without this ingredient!): It's called Latterì, is a buffalo milk to 100% with a fat content of 18%. This milk has a very creamy consistency (closer to that of cream rather than milk) and a naturally sweet flavor. For some time I had discovered the burro di bufala, I use all the time, and now I'm appreciating this product that allows you to use less sugar and less starch in sweet and savory dishes brings delicacy and softness, with a unique and unmistakable flavour. Today's recipe is a panna cotta of buffalo milk spiced with cardamom, star anise, cinnamon, Sichuan Pepper and cloves, accompanied by a strawberry coulis, Mint and ginger and a Gelee of strawberries and chocolate. Is’ a sweet fresh and appetizing. The spices, left to infuse the milk over night, soften the scent of buffalo milk and strawberries acidity softens in turn the heat of spices. You can prepare this panna cotta Spiced and intense flavor even with the milk and cream, following the recipe for panna cotta normal, I'm obviously the doses. The procedure remains the same. Have a good day!
