Panna Cotta: Italy's Elegant Custard Made Easy"" is a collection of panna cotta recipes that are both simple and sophisticated. It is the perfect book for cooks who are looking for dessert and first-course recipes that have plenty of style but require little fuss. This collection of recipes highlights how panna cotta, much like vanilla ice cream, is a blank slate for flavor possibilities. By swapping out or adding in a few ingredients, an almost infinite number of flavorings and garnishes emerge. And though the name means cream, many of the panna cotta in this collection are reinterpreted with other dairy products, including plain milk, creme fraiche, buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, cream cheese, and mascarpone cheese.
