Just like in fashion, food also have its trends and I have to admit I hate when it happens. You see the same recipe everywhere with very few modifications - magazines, websites, blogs, tv.... but trendy recipes also taste good and as long as we don't stick only with them I think we should be fine. Panna Cotta is definitely something on the spotlight these days and if you pay attention to the ingredients you will find that is very similar to other desserts around the world like the flummery in France, Manjar in Brazil, syllabub in England... and the bottom line is - it is a creamy vanilla dessert, very refreshing , not heavy and delicious and if there are so many versions for the same thing it means you have to try it, right? Right!
In this recipe the sesame seed brittle enriches the sweet flavor of the panna cotta. Sesame seeds are quite bitter and even though caramel is sweet, hard caramel contain nut notes that when combined with the sweetness from the panna cotta it creates a contrast between sweet and bitter. Very nice!
