Naturally eggless and gluten free, panna cotta (literally "cooked cream") is a flan-like Italian dessert made from sweetened cream and gelatin. Often flavored with vanilla bean or instant coffee, this rich and creamy dessert is incredibly easy and incomparably elegant. Traditionally, the vanilla custard is served with fresh fruit or a sweet-tart fruit compote (like balsamic strawberries or port-poached cherries) to balance the sweetness of the cream. Here are 5 fantastic recipes for this simple summertime dessert!
