Buttermilk Panacotta & Floss

These are the perfect dinner party sweet, light, sweet and you can be super organised and make them the day before, just whip them out on the night, un mould  and add the garnish, they taste and look stunning. Once you master the pannacotta  try other flavours, add orange zest and cinnamon, or infused the cream with your  favourite liqueur or coffee.

Garnish with fresh fruits, or roasted crushed almonds, the crunchy nuts will compliment the soft silky texture of the pannacotta.
