This is a Day for Creme Brulee

Actually, any day is a Creme Brulee day for me!


National Creme Brulee Day is observed annually on July 27th!  Get ready to enjoy a dish of this mouth-watering creamy dessert.

Creme brulee is also known as burnt cream, crema Catalana, and Trinity creme.  It is a dessert that consists of a rich custard base that is topped with a contrasting layer of hard caramel and served at room temperature.

The custard base is usually vanilla flavored but has variations of lemon, orange, rosemary, lavender, chocolate, Amaretto, Grand Marnier, cinnamon, coffee, liqueurs, green tea, pistachio, hazelnut, coconut or other fruit.
