I hope I find you all very well. My week has been pretty rough. In brief, I am a scientist during the day and a blogger in the night (ja, with costume, mask and cape). It just happened that the company where I am employed have decided to close. As a result, there will be what is called “redundancy” and, unfortunately, I am part of this redundancy together with other dozens of people. One would say: it is summer, sun is shining, do barbeque some good pork ribs, enjoy some nice cold beers and life will smile again. The problem with that is that here it is still freaking cold! The temperature has almost never been over 20˚C this year! For God sake, I really need some comfort food today, something nice that could cheer me up! Let’s see what my beloved Maria can prepare with her nice little hands.
You know what? I am freaking barbequing anyway. I take my winter sweater, turn on the barbeque and grill some nice, marinated pork ribs, chicken breast, hamburger, corn, tomatoes, zucchini and I am pouring a good glass of red wine. Every now and then I close my eyes and think about summer. Be positive!
For dessert Maria prepared a fantastic “Liquorice Pannacotta” with fresh Blueberries and Crushed Meringues. I simply love liquorice, I enjoy it very much: I always have some liquorice candies around.
It happened that we found a can of liquorice syrup we bought a while ago in the kitchen cabinet. Let’s do something delicate, tasty that does not fill you up, especially after one of my barbeque. I am picky when it comes to barbeque, everything has to be perfect. I prefer some relaxing chat and a good glass of wine while I am barbequing. This means that we need to be effective and efficient with other activities: we need a dessert that is simple and easy-to-do without losing its appealing and sweet charm. Liquorice Pannacotta has all the above mentioned features.
I have to say that after the first spoon of this pannacotta I closed my eyes while I was eating the rest. It was just what I needed! KokiDoo’s Liquorice Pannacotta is vegetarian without gelatine, which usually contains animal skin. I have to say that removing gelatine, improved the texture of Pannacotta. It is firm as it should be but smooth and creamy. The taste is fantastic: intense and persistent in the mouth. I would say that is an intense, smooth dream of liquorice. Remarkable was the addition of blueberries and crushed meringues. They are not only part of the decoration, they contribute to the taste and texture of the dessert. For example, the meringue add the crunchiness to the pannacotta, while blueberries contribute with a tiny little amount of their tangy flavour. Super! You can add more meringues and/or blueberries if it fits better for you. The meringues can be bought ready-made, otherwise you can follow KokiDoo’s recipe for meringues. I am very satisfied and my mind was blown away for few moments thanks to this superb Liquorice Pannacotta!
