Panna cotta is a much beloved molded Italian dessert made with cream and topped with fresh or cooked fruit, chocolate or caramel. This melon panna cotta is my own creation, made by substituting the milk in the classic recipe with pureed fruit. You can use other seasonal fruit like strawberries, peaches or mangos with quite splendid results.
A delightful fennel and orange salad with black olives, bursting with Mediterranean flavors. The recipe features crisp, thinly sliced fennel ribbons, paired harmoniously with juicy orange wedges and savory olives.
This is delicate dessert using just the right balance of spices that bring out the taste of the pears. Using a dessert wine like Vinsanto or Moscato imparts acidity and floral notes to the final, delicious results.
