I like the writing on the creme brule. Too me, most of the tv cooks are very inane, boring, and overly cheerful. These people get paid a “lottie” and could do better. Even cookbooks lack sparkle and pzazzzz. I think it is time for you to write your own cookbook.
Maggie- I got mine at Sur La Table and it seems to work great. (It is also available on their website) That being said, there are cheaper well-reviewed ones on Amazon, at least one of which looks like exactly the same torch. Most of these don’t come with butane, so be sure to order that too. Happy torching!
Hi Susie: So glad you liked the cake.
Yes, you can broil. Greenspan suggests filling a shallow roasting pan with ice cubes and putting the ramekins on the ice. Put them under the broiler and watch constantly. I haven’t tried this method, so if you do- let me know! Good luck!
this is my first time visiting your blog and I have to tell you, I think it’s beautiful! wonderful pictures, creative recipes, and I really can’t wait to make this particular recipe. Thank you for being a great inspiration to fellow food bloggers like myself
