Life is a Bowl of Cherries...or a Cherry Tart

Cherries in Rome:


Cherries in Montelpulciano:


Cherries in Palm Desert:


Last week, I made this for Brad. As it involved chocolate, I didn't taste it, but did eat some of the yogurt-panna cotta filling in a bowl! When I saw this recipe in the Martha Stewart's Living magazine, I thought it was a very pretty dessert, and wanted to try the chocolate crust with a layer of "painted on" melted chocolate. The filling is a simple panna cotta with plain yogurt. It can be decorated with any fruit. I omitted the mint from the panna cotta filling, and Martha's tarts are much more beautiful, decorated with currants (out of season) or tiny wild strawberries.



Here is a close-up. Don't forget to pit those cherries!

Ooooooo, that looks delish! Are you having Italy withdrawals yet? I AM!!!

I love Italy and I love your blog! Such yummy photos :)

Palma, that is just gorgeous. My friend's birthday is coming up this weekend and he adores cherries and chocolate. I think it turned out beautiful with cherries.
