Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée with Strawberry

Does a person really need any legitimate reason to wield a blow torch?  That tap-tap-tap when you test a creme brûlée’s competency is heavenly. Even more so when you figure out a way to make it super quick, without any fuss.  Now it is possible (in theory) to get that crispy caramelised top without a […] Read more…

Peach Melba à la Nigella

There is one fail safe person to turn to, when the desire to nurse a gluttonous desire unfurls, and that person is unmistakeably Nigella.

Not a wasted Sunday in the least!

On a side note, is anyone else obsessed with puff pastry? It somehow manages to uplift my mood and make the world a happier, butter-ier place. Everyone who travels with me thinks I need a bit of, well, *help*, simply because I can’t resist purchasing a truck load of goodies  Read more…

Just Peachy!

PS: There are no post-torched pictures, because, well quite frankly, we ate them all up before getting a shot! I got a torch. Not a magliteor a blackberry. A blow torch, to brûlée and make everything pretty. I found it in this little storewith kitchen aids of every kind, with bread machines, bread starters, fresh […] Read more…
