my roommate, eric, was gone this weekend. i found myself doing what i love to do with an empty kitchen...make nachos. but also, creme brulee, which to my mind is among the finest desserts somebody ever came up with. nothing like raw egg yolks, sugar, heavy cream and some special flavoring. everything a growing artery block needs. ever since its first appearance in a 1691 cookbook in france, this dessert with it's carmelized sugar shell has been pleasing palates around the globe.
well...i make the best creme brulee. truly, you should try it sometime. i prepared some for eric and he informed me of the same thing. the fact that he had never had it before is really immaterial. it is his new favorite dessert!
