It’s irresistible property will make people refill their bowl or take another shot of this light yet toothsome sweet dish right away. The only tough part is the wait to let it set apart from that this is such a super-duper hit recipe with a chic name 😉

The strawberry coulis on top of it is a perfect combination to the custard. It is a treat to your taste buds when consumed together in a bite. The sweet smooth texture of panna cotta blends perfectly with tangy pungent flavor of strawberries hence the Fusion Explosion in your mouth resulting in craving for more.

About Panna Cotta: It is a very basic pudding that is made of dairy thickened with gelatin. It originated in Italy and its name literally means “cooked cream,” since the earliest versions were made of thick cream, sometimes thickened with fish bones. It was invented by a Hungarian woman in the Langhe in the early 1900s but the name Panna Cotta is not mentioned in Italian cookbooks before the 1960s.
