A comforting silken custard that gets is elegance from it’s simplicity, a traditional Panna Cotta is a hard thing to beat. This Panna Cotta is really special though, the kind of dessert you’d want to serve to your favourite person in the entire world.
The addition of crème fraîche adds a delicious smooth mouthfeel with the refreshing clean finish that you get from the tang of crème fraîche. Combined with sweet perfumed pears and almost burnt, nutty brittle, this recipe is an absolute knockout. I’m looking forward to adding this to my Autumn/ Winter menu for private clients. A perfect autumn dessert or an alternative Christmas showstopper.
