Literally 'burnt cream' in French, crème brûlée is so delicious that its name is now famous all over the world. No need to have a special blowtorch or fancy equipment—all you need is an oven, a broiler, and patience to wait for your guests arrive before digging in.
1. Preheat the oven to 225°F.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks with ½ cup sugar. Using a teaspoon, scrap the seeds from the vanilla pod into the bowl. Add the milk. Whisk as you slowly add the whipping cream until the mixture is homogeneous.
3. Pour in 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour.
4. Take the ramekins out of the oven, let them cool at room temperature, wrap, and put them in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
5. Fifteen minutes before serving, preheat the oven to broil. Sprinkle brown sugar onto each ramekin. Broil for 2 minutes before serving. Take the ramekins out as soon as the sugar starts to caramelize.
Le Petit Truc
You know that the custard is ready when the custard doesn’t shake when you try to move it.
Pair with a sweet dry wine from the Loire Valley, for instance.
- 4 egg yolks
- ½ cup sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 vanilla pod, split in two lengthwise
- ¾ cup whole milk
- 1 cup whipping cream

It is often difficult to source the ingredients here in the US that are found in French cookbooks. However, Delarue is a French expat living, cooking and sourcing her food here in the US so the recipes do not contain a range of ingredients that can’t be found in the stores.
Delarue has also labeled the recipes as classic, vegan, vegetarian, dairy free, under 30 minutes, etc which I think this will be quite helpful to a variety of readers. Plus she gives you wine pairings!
The French Cooking Class and French Basics chapters had me anxious to plan this week’s menu and get started cooking!
I love how the book is broken up, starting with "French Cooking Class" and moving on to "French Basics"!
Each recipe lists if it is Gluten free, Dairy free, Under 30 minutes, Vegetarian, etc and also has a little "story", explanation or history of the recipe!
I love the addition of the "Le Petit Truc" at the bottom of each recipe!
The photograpy is beautiful! Takes me right back to France!
I am very pleased with this cookbook, it is simple for us to follow, elegant, classically French and has a little bit of everything!
Merci beaucoup Cécile!!!
Cecile Delarue cuts through the fear of French. The French Cooking Class chapter is tops, and French Basics gives you confidence that this is the key to making French approachable and delicious, as well as a primer on equipment and ingredients needed.
The recipes are organized by course and each has prep time and cook or refrigeration time listed. All are tagged with diet specifics which is awesome when planning a meal or scouting recipes. I love how the Origin is listed for many classics. The ingredients needed are easily acquired and most recipes are quick, for everyday cooks.
Some of these recipes have "La Petit Truc" which is tips or is it tricks (?) and also a Pairing suggestion, because wine is part of French dining (and cooking).
I learned French cooking from Julia Child's "Mastering the Art"...and have to say I am very impressed with this French Cooking Book. Wonderful.
The chapter pictures make me long for France and wish there were more.
Beautiful Cookbook. I'm awestruck and will be checking out the recipes in my kitchen and don't think I will be disappointed.
The publisher sent me this cookbook without charge.
