Rachel Allen on panna cotta - the cream of the crop
Desserts don't need to be elaborate. It's true that every so often a colossal creation can end a meal in style. Looking up at a croquembouche, with its cascading tower of profiteroles and caramel, is an impressive finale to a feast. Yet, most of the time, that isn't what I want after a big dinner. I still want something sweet and rich, but just a little taste of it. Few desserts are more perfect than a silky panna cotta.
