Classic Parisian Bistro Crème Brûlée

Back in the 17th century François Massialot, chef de cuisine to various illustrious personages, was credited with inventing the crème brûlée, in which the ‘burnt’ sugar topping was melted with a red-hot fire shovel. This classic creamy, Parisian bistro dessert is a firm favourite, providing it’s not adulterated with things like fruit or chocolate – it’s all about thick, vanilla-infused custard and glossy shards of crunchy sugar. The easiest way to caramelise the sugar topping is with a chef’s blowtorch but, if you don’t have one, the alternative is to place the ramekins as near to the heat as possible under a very hot grill – but keep your eye on them. And do remember to leave them to sit for a while in order to let the top harden and the ramekins cool down. more
