Blackberry Panna Cotta; sometimes, the most delicious of dishes is the one of the simplest to make… This is a prime example and one that I love to dive into…. Agar agar is a much healthier alternative to gelatine and arguable just as effective. I love the blackberries in this dish which complement the panna cotta.
