Panna Cotta: Summer's Perfect Dessert

Panna cotta with berries and currants

Panna cotta ("cooked cream") is a fantastically elegant and delicate pudding originating in the Piemonte region, but nowadays enjoyed all over Italy. It's a wonderful dessert for spring and summer as it's served chilled, doesn't require any baking, and pairs wonderfully with all sorts of fresh fruit or fruit sauces, though it can also be served with chocolate sauce, caramel, or really any dessert topping you can think of. .
