Doesn't panacotta have to set up? So, you can use a stove top but not an oven, right?

Hi Iggi2309,
It looks like you`ve got quite a challenge. Here are a few ideas for you.
1. Sauteed peaches with a cointreau flavoured sabayon or another liqueur of your choice.
2. Souffle omelette - I assume you can use the grill?broiler?
3. Prune beignets with armagnac sauce - prunes in batter, deep fried and served and a pool of sauce feathered with some cream.
4. Crepes Suzette - thin crepes in an orange liqueuer flavoured sauce with garnished with orange segments and maybe a quenelle (or 2) of cream.
Hope these ideas help the thinking process,
All the best,

PC needs a couple of hours i.e.

Chocolate Panna Cotta

How about an ice cream or mud pie, or trifle. Here's a pumpkin Trifle from Mr. Food (ooo, it's so good) as an example. Good luck.

(Instead of using prepackaged vanillla pudding - how about making the "Martini" with homemade eggnog pudding? Just a thought.)
