Overall, Panna Cotta must be one of the best desserts to experiment with! It is a very easy dish to prepare (although it doesn’t look it) and you can make it ahead of time, which is fantastic when you have guests to deal with. It also has a great shelf life – some sources mentioned 10 days, although that sounds a bit optimistic! 😉 It is just so versatile! Once you have found a good base recipe, you can customise it to your taste, either by adding: fruits (passion fruit, strawberry…), flowers (rose, lavender, chamomile…), herbs (basil, rosemary…) or spices (cardamom, cinnamon, star anis…); steep the cream with tea bags (matcha, earl grey…) or exchange the milk with yoghurt, buttermilk or even soft goat cheese – the possibilities are endless!!!Continue reading
Roasted Red Pepper Risotto with Burrata & Pesto
Welcome Spring with this beautiful Risotto. It is comforting, satisfying and bursting with flavour. It has the perfect level of creaminess and feels even more indulgent thanks to the burrata.

To sum up, this could become one of your staple dishes as it will leave you wanting more – I’m drooling just looking at the pictures!!!
Risotto is normally served as a starter, although here it takes centre stage as a vegetarian main course – it is just too gorgeous not to! Serve it to impress your guests or just for a cosy tête-à-tête at home – it is perfect for every situation!Continue reading
