Season 1 - Episode 9
Crème brûlée is a classic bistro dish of smooth custard with a caramelized sugar topping—an important dessert for pastry chefs to master. To begin, Anna demonstrates how to make a traditional Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée with chilled creamy custard under a layer of crackling burnt sugar. Next Anna expands on that basic recipe with Fresh Berry Crème Brûlée. This version has a different cooking method and a layer of sweet and delicious berries underneath the velvety custard and crunchy brûlée covering. But for the ultimate in indulgence, Anna shows viewers how to make a Caramel Apple Crème Brûlée, using the apple as both an ingredient and a vessel to serve this decadent dessert. Simply scrumptious. Lastly, Anna gets creative and sophisticated making an elegant Icewine Crème Brûlée.
