Born in the picturesque northern region of Piedmont, panna cotta has long been one of the most popular Italian desserts. For its delicate taste and simplicity of preparation, it is loved all over the world. Traditionally, panna cotta is served with berry sauce, but a coffee and chocolate version also exists — this is what we bring to your attention.
First, mix 500 ml of 20% heavy cream and 50 g of sugar in a small bowl. Slightly warm the mixture on medium heat, stirring constantly, and then add 100 g of bitter chocolate. Wait until it boils and the chocolate completely dissolves. You can add a pinch of vanilla for flavor, to your liking. While the mixture cools down, dilute 15 g of gelatin according to the instructions on the package. Take the cream off the heat, add two standard cups of ristretto from Porto Rosso Ristretto and the diluted gelatin. Mix until homogeneous.
Pour the mixture into molds and chill in the refrigerator until it is completely solid. Before serving, put the molds into hot water for a few seconds and then turn over on a plate. Sprinkle with grated chocolate or berries. It’s high time to please the guests with the Italian-style finishing of the dinner.
