Panna cotta al the matcha con salsa di ribes/Matcha panna cotta with redcurrant sauce

Last week I was nominated for the Versatile Blog Award
I must thank the blog KitchenMemory that made me this beautiful surprise and today's recipe is also a homage to say Thanks!
Here are 7 things you should know about me:

1. I enjoy being in the Nature. My favorites are the desert areas and forests.
2. Always dress with lots of colors, especially red, pink, fuchsia.
3. Like many people, I could not live without music.
4. I like adventure stories and I love pirates.
5. I am proud of my freckles
6. I get withdrawal symptoms due to lack of chocolate or raw fish.
7. I'm shy

 And now 15 blogs I like:

Bake Yourself Go
Spoon Fork Bacon
Winner Celebration Party
Someone Left TheCake Out In The Rain
Dolcipensieri

Obviously there would be others, but these are the rules of the Award!

With this sweet recipe, I will also say goodbye for two weeks because I will be traveling abroad for work and certainly will not have neither the time nor the opportunity to cook. Sigh!

  1. Elena, first, that gorgeous photo caught my eye. This recipe sounds DELICIOUS, and I will have to try it! Did you know, I used "panna cotta" in a game played with some friends, wherein we were supposed to guess the item by asking yes/no questions. No one could guess it! Surprising.

    Second, congratulations on the nomination, and thank you for the mention! Didn't expect that, and it is very kind of you. :) (p.s. I'm shy, too)

    I hope your work trip goes well; see you (in blogland) when you return!
