I think it is about time that somebody demystify this recipe! That amazing crème de la crème with a caramelized topping. Mmh… I am sure you want one now and I will help you to make that happen. Promise.
When I tell people who I prepared a crème brûlée, they are always ”wowed” and think I am a super chef because of that. And sometimes because I am French too.
While I am happy to take that credit and those compliments, I have to share the secret with you, it is way too simple. My go-to-recipe is FROM a book! Of course, I am like you. I am not going to reinvente the wheel, specially when it is just perfect.
