strawberry and panna cotta stripes

oh i know that the strawberry season is over but i had a very special request from my colleague stefano to make a panna cotta for his party (tomorrow he makes an inauguration party of his new loft!), and i thougth that the best would be a mix of panna cotta and strawberries. here for you the recipe! even if it looks a bit complicated it's actually very easy (only some patience is needed).

you will need (for six cups):
for panna cotta:
-250 ml of milk
-250 ml of fresh cream (not very dense)
-70 g of sugar
-10 g of gelatine leafs (usually 2 leafs)

for strawberry mousse:
-250 g of fresh strawberries
-2 table spoons of sugar
-10 g of gelatine leafs (usually 2 leafs)
put the gelatine leafs (both for fruit mousse and panna cotta) in a bowl with a cold water. in a saucepan mix the milk with cream and sugar. keep on fire until the mixture boils. take away from the fire and divide the mixture in two parts. add to the one part a half of the gelatine destined for panna cotta and mix well until the gelatine melts completely. put the mixture in the cups and transfer in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.

in the meantime prepare the strawberry mousse: mince the strawberries with the blender. divide in two parts. put the first part in a saucepan and heat it on a small fire (don't make it boil). when it's hot add a half of gelatine destined for the mousse and mix well together. leave for cooling for a while. take the cups with panna cotta and add a stripe of strawberry mousse on the top. put again in the freezer for 20 minutes. take the second part of panna cotta cream and add the rest of gelatine. make another stripe in the cups. repeat now the same with strawberry mousse (always keeping the cups for 20 minutes in the freezer between one stripe and the other). leave for cooling in the frige for at least 2 hours (the best would be whole night). i'm sure you'll love it! enjoy!

Yummy! My mom used to make diagonal-striped puddings, but nothing as fancy as panna cotta.
