Remarks

This recipe also works well with apricots and almonds. The general idea is to balance the soft sweetness of the almonds with a slightly tart fruit.

You can also make the panna cotta without cream, just using more almond milk instead, but do note that the texture will be quite different and not as, well, creamy.

Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
