That’s right… red velvet panna cotta! Because red velvet is the most glorious flavour in the world and panna cotta has the dreamiest texture in the world. Both of them together literally envelope your tongue into a world of rich, deep, dark and satisfying flavour.
You don’t need to wait around for Halloween or a bout of trick or treating to enjoy my red velvet panna cotta. I’m certain without the cobwebs and spiders it will do it’s trick on any given night but do consider dressing it up to the nines for a spooky festive feel. If you are having a party for a number of guests you could serve the red velvet panna cotta in shot glasses.
This recipe only takes minutes to assemble and it’s absolutely delicious. All mousse-like and light it has a fresh tarty taste which terrifies your tastebuds into submission. Ahmed and I were craving red velvet and dessert and so this recipe came to be. Panna cotta has been on my mind for a while, ever since I came across this beautiful coconut and rose panna cotta recipe and because I watch too many re-runs of Masterchef where they always throw panna cottas into the blast chiller.
Gorden Ramsay would be like: unbelievable, it tastes delicious to this red velvet panna cotta or there would be a meme about me, either way, try it out for yourself!
