Deconstructed Pear Panna Cotta

Enjoy this Deconstructed Pear Panna Cotta, round the year with Ossoro!

Pear is such a wonderful fruit with a crisp and juicy nature. A wide range of  desserts can be made using pear. But they are available only for very short period.

So here comes Ossoro’s Juicy Pear Extract to rescue us and make us enjoy pear all through out the year. Check out Ossoro’s Website for a range of different flavor Extracts.

And as I said in my previous post, their Belgian Chocolate Powder has an extra ordinary deep chocolate Flavor. I have used it in my Gluten-free Ragi Brookies.

Panna cotta is a Classic Italian Dessert. Gelatin and Heavy Cream are used to make Panna cotta. And usually, served chill topped with any fruit compote or fresh fruits.

In Particular, I wanted to make something different. Thus I was lead to this Deconstructed Pear Panna cotta! I made a Pear and Star Anise panna cotta and served it with some Almond Praline and Strawberries. Berries are a great way to serve Panna cotta.
