If I make a cream covered pancetta pudding thing now will it be soggy by tonight?

It's a Jamie thing, where you cover a sliced and alcohol dripped panacotta with whipped double cream and chopped almonds.

I don't want it to be a soggy mush by the time guests come.

Advice please.

Pancetta pudding. Holy cow. Some people reading this will be suffering from pregnancy sickness, you know wink

I know, I don't entertain very often. I don't know what came over me.

Do you mean pannettone? Italian bread cake thing? Pannacotta is creamy set pudding thing, so wouldn't go soggy.

I read this as placenta shock

Even worse, I read your thread title and my brain just changed it automatically. Didn't even notice the mistake!!!

OH GOD I DO MEAN PANNATONE. I am a shit cook. I bought the bloody thing yesterday I might start a new thread

Well, to answer your initial question, it sounds like a very simple dish to assemble, so why can't you do it at the last minute?

Why not slice/prepare everything beforehand, and then add the cream/alcohol (or whatever you're putting on the bacon/pannacotta/pannetone!) at the last minute?

Please see new, correct thread.

Have a good evening and, erm, good luck to your guests grin

Must be tired, I read this as a 'cream covered placenta pudding'blush

CybilLiberty Sat 05-Sep-09 12:26:47

lol. It will be a culinary adventure that's for sure

TrillianAstra Sat 05-Sep-09 12:44:07


Yes, it will. But that might be good, I always find <those Italian bread cake size-of-your-head things> a bit dry. Soggy like tiramisu is soggy = good.

I can't believe I'm such a numpty

sophietom Sat 05-Sep-09 12:52:41

just clicked on this as I was disturbed by the idea of a creamy bacony pudding grin

no it's just me being a prat

ROFL. Give us a quick precis of the recipe. I'm with TrillianAstra - when it comes to Italian cake-based puddings, soggy (i.e. full of booze) is good!

When it comes to pork-based puddings, soggy guests full of booze can be the only way grin

This reminds me of the episode of Friends when Rachel makes a trifle with cake, jam, cream and beef. Then can't understand for ages why the rest don't seem to like it!

TrillianAstra Sun 06-Sep-09 02:07:21

I think the trifle and cottage pie pages got stuck together in her cookbook.

Joey loved it!

CybilLiberty Sun 06-Sep-09 11:22:50

It was a triumph! And I got the name right on the night

Well done Cybil!

I love that episode of Friends - Elliot Gould is on fire in it.
