What’s the next food or dessert that I can use my abundant figs in my garden? Hmm!!! Let it be a different flavour from all my other panna cotta. Since I am having friends over after 1 whole year and 2 weeks no visitors allowed. Should make it fun creative and adventurous dessert.
Have not tried it on Flute glasses or white wine glasses. That’s something definitely creative and interesting. The pandemic also inspired me to expand my culinary skill, creative and exploration in a way that I have never dream that my determination to produce food that I am thankful to have.
But the most thrilling experiences are of course, sharing my culinary skill, where I can literally get a grasp on the meaning of sharing. One particular special feature is my caring which invites you to try your best too as I have shared here with you. I have learned that I had have to be tough as nails and enormously rest-assured that God is with me to embrace all the challenge and rejoice with grateful, trusting heart. Many of us, meantime, had come to think there’s no Hope; but the shift will change our life is there if only we practice trusting and thanking attitudes.
Aww, how lovely, delicious and creative my figs panna cotta look in the glass. The picture above is my creation. In addition, I have some fruits, vanilla ice cream and mascarpone cream whipped. Let my friends have fun creating their own glasses. Oopsy!!! forgot to take theirs creation. All so excited to create and eating straight away. Let’s cook!!!!
