Crème Brûlée is an elegant and classic dessert. When I first tried it I remember thinking, how could only a few simple ingredients put together taste so good?
A touch of lavender adds an aromatic hint of spring to the brulee and complements the vanilla flavours. When cooking with lavender only a small amount is needed, and always make sure you use a variety suitable for cooking. Boutiques are usually the best when searching for smaller bunches.
If you don’t have a blowtorch for caramelizing the top you can use your grill to create the desired effect. Remember to cook the brulees on a low heat until the centre of the brulee is moving slightly when gently moving the trey.
