Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Cherry Sauce

Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Cherry Sauce

Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert which means cooked cream, believed to have originated from Northern Italian region of Piedmont. It is made by simmering together cream, milk & sugar , mixing it with gelatin and letting it cool until set. It is generally flavoured with vanilla & served with wild berries, caramel or chocolate sauce.Since cherries are in season in Germany now, I dressed the panna cotta with cherry sauce. Cherries mainly contain dietary fiber & vitamin C.
