a cup of pànera - Typically Genoese, “panera” is a sort of coffee flavoured chilled dessert, made with fresh cream, coffee powder, sugar and beaten egg yolks. The dessert, which is cooked “bain marie”, strained through a cloth and put through the ice cream making device, dates from the mid XIX century and takes its name from the contraction in Genoese dialect of “panna nera” (because the cream darkens with the addition of the coffee powder which gives it its flavour).
