Summer Dessert

If only I could make quenelles!

I call this ensemble of foods my summer dessert.
- Blueberry cornbread
- Crushed gingersnaps
- Fresh peach slice, strawberries
- Vanilla gelato
- Salted pumpkin seed & pistachio chocolate bark
- Port berry reduction
- Dulce de leche panna cotta

The panna cotta turned out wonderfully with a smooth texture.  I used the following recipe;

- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup 1% milk
- 2.5 sheets 160 bloom/silver strength gelatin sheets
- 1/2 cup dulce de leche

  1. Heat the heavy cream and milk together.  Remove from the range, stirring occasionally.
  2. Bloom the gelatin sheets in cold water for about 5 minutes.  Shake off excess water.
  3. Add the gelatin to the heavy cream/milk mixture, and stir until dissolved.
  4. Add dulce de leche, stir until dissolved.
  5. Pour into mold of choice.
  6. Garnish with chocolate shavings
