Creme Brulee for Christmas

Crème Brulee…what a decadent way to celebrate the festive season

Add some of Peninsula Larders Flavour Pearls for some sparkle and pop instead of fussing with a blow torch…a little safer too… after a few too many wines it’s a good idea to steer clear of naked flame! We have plated ours with Salted Caramel for that traditional caramel flavour. Not keen on caramel? You could try Cherry, Tangerine, Blackcurrant, Passionfruit or even Chocolate. Oh, and we have added a gingerbread Christmas tree for a little festive crunch.
