Originally thought to be from Piedmont in North Italy, this Panna Cotta is a show-stopper. See the full recipe below…..
Panna = Cream
Cotta = Cooked
Cooked CREAM, get it? That means you should not be using milk, half and half, or light cream in this recipe!
PANNA COTTA RECIPE

2 cups heavy cream (500ml, or 1 pint)
2 ½ tblsp sugar (45gr, or 1 ½ oz.)
