A great recipe from Pastry Master Pierre Hermé, for a creamy custard based Creme brulée and Pistachio lovers

Thanks to this recipe, I have now switched back to Creme Brulées !

Cooling downTake the ramekins out, let them cool down at room temperature.
Placing the ramekins in the fridge to cool completely for at least
2 hours. This can even be done overnight without affecting the texture.
