After two weekends in a row of travel (and recover from travel), I was able to get back into my cooking routine. This weekend, I tried out a recipe for Creme Brulee. I was excited to learn how to use a kitchen torch more than anything else, but the challenge of making a custard dessert was also one reason I chose this dish this week.
I have to say that I was really pleased with how everything turned out! The custard set and had a wonderfully smooth, creamy texture. I did have to do some running around town to find a kitchen torch then the right kind of butane to light the damn thing... But everything came together so well, and I got the sugar crust nice and crunchy on top.
I think next time I'll use a little more sugar on top, to get that full layer of crunch that you can crack with a spoon. But this recipe is a keeper.
