A great recipe from Pastry Master Pierre Hermé, for a creamy custard based Creme brulée and Pistachio lovers
As a result I kept eating Crema Catalanas and not Creme Brulées, until the day I stumbled on a recipe from Pierre Hermé and I just fell in love with it.
Thanks to this recipe, I have now switched back to Creme Brulées !

Placing the ramekins in the fridge to cool completely for at least
2 hours. This can even be done overnight without affecting the texture.
