Have You Ever Seen Creme Brûlée Done This Way?

by Roni

I thought you might get a kick out of seeing how they brown the top of creme brûlée. I snapped these pics with my phone when I was in Paris in March of this year.  The waiter/owner was nice enough to hold the hot thingy (yes, the hot thingy is an official French term) so I could get the shots. I think it’s pretty cool how he did this at the table, I had never encountered that before.

I can tell you that this was delicious and I ate the whole thing. This restaurant did not have an ‘English spoken here’ sign in the window and it was a super small resto (that’s what the French call restaurants). In fact, this is where I got the picture of the menu for yesterdays post.  Have you had creme brûlée? Did you like it?

That’s really cool! I love creme brulee but I haven’t had it in years. It must taste better in Paris!

It’s SO much better in Paris! Especially when you have the Parisian restaurant and the French waiter serving it to you…just divine. Thanks for commenting!

My father in law has some sort of flaming thing that he uses for his. It’s kind of cool to watch!

I think that’s how most people do it. I love watching it either way! Thanks for stopping by!
