Retour en douceur(s)...A sweet return...

Panna Cotta au "Buttermilk" et compotée de figues blanches à la NoisetteButtermilk Panna Cotta with white figs compote and Hazelnuts Life can be funny sometimes...I have just spent almost a month in the USA, and I really fell in love with buttermilk.

Panna Cotta Ispahan à ma façon, My very own Ispahan Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta Framboises, Litchis et RoseRaspberry, Litchi and Rose Panna Cotta This is not exactly the recipe I wanted to share today. Actually, it was supposed to be a panna cotta, but topped with a decadent orange and passion fruit compote, recipe of Pierre Hermé. But, to my big surprise and disappointment, I could not find passion fruits in my local market. In order to keep my recipe with a Pierre Hermé’s touch, I have decided to make a Ispahan version with raspberries, litchis and... [Lire la suite]
