While panna cotta literally means “cooked cream” in Italian, the real trick to getting that perfectly smooth texture is to actually not bring the cream to boil.

To make this recipe foolproof so anyone can get that perfect consistency, I’ve decided to use the double-boiler method which prevents the cream or milk from getting overcooked.
While I like the classic vanilla panna cotta, I wanted to put an Asian twist to it by infusing this dessert with rich coconut flavor and balancing it with a touch of citrus from the mandarin orange. The final product was this scrumptious and elegant-looking Coconut Mandarin Orange Panna Cotta.

    What a gorgeous dessert. I may even try this out for our Christmas. By the way Yi, I tried downloading the new year recipe book but failed despite many trials. I wonder why or anyone has any suggestion how this can be done? Thanks and hope you guys will have an enjoyable and fun holiday.
