Finger Lime Pannacotta, Desert Lime Granita and Macadamia Crumb



    Mixed with the traditional Italian Panna cotta, it gives a unique Australian-Italian fusion which is perfect to prepare in advance for a dinner party. With the delicious aroma of fresh zesty, citrus and tantalizing hint of cooked apples, this dessert fills the room with the smell of native citrus as soon as it starts baking. The Desert Lime gives it a unique piquant lime flavour, perfect addition to the citric notes. It's best served when cool after main meals.
