Alas, the food blog community must have been laughing at my own less than original attempt at this dessert. A look at some of my other favourite blogs revealed that they had decided to make the same dessert... but much, much fancier. There was Panna Cotta infused with Kahlua and served with Florentine Cookies (I'll Have What Shes Having) , Bourbon Panna Cotta with Bacon Florentines (Cherry Tea Cakes), Coffee Panna Cotta (Art and Lemons), Chocolate Panna Cotta (The Cultural Dish).... It just wasn't fair! I decided to throw in the blogs of origin just for your viewing. Perhaps you'll get your own ideas of
However, the silver lining exists. While I suppose I could pretend that my own Panna Cotta recipe helped to inspire all of these other renditions, I have the feeling that simply isn't true. What it does do, is help to inspire me for the next time I make Panna Cotta. I'm already thinking about adding some Disaronno to "kick it up a notch", as Emeril would say! And i'll definitely have to look into some Florentine recipes.
We all like to be challenged in the kitchen, and I'll be looking to improve upon my own recipe and perhaps to challenge some other ones as well!
