Good morning, from France, even! And yes, it’s Friday. So shouldn’t I be posting a recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s Around my French Table? Sadly, after nearly 5 years, that project is over 🙁 We posted our last recipe from the book on May 22nd, then our final post about our experiences last week. So this week, and for the next (at least) eight weeks, I’m choosing to post “things French” on Fridays…
This week, I’m posting one of my mum and dad’s (and actually Neil’s and mine too) favourite French desserts in honour of their 50th wedding anniversary. Fifty years! That deserves some bubbly (on its way to you mum and dad!) and some dessert, right?
Crème brûlée is a family favourite dessert. It’s also a dessert that many people find intimidating but it’s actually not that difficult. Ironically, when I made Dorie’s version it was not a success (one of the very few recipes from the book that wasn’t). I played around a little using various recipes I have to come up with a version that is both easy and tasty.
Happy anniversary, P+G XO
