Hot Stuff

As so many of my kitchen-crazy peers, I have lusted for a crème brulée torch for a long time.
As very few of them though, I don’t allow myself to buy too many single-purposed tools. That’s why it took a present from a friend of mine to finally equip me with that fine invention.

Of course it didn’t take me long to realize that there’s no such thing as a genuine single-purposed tool. There are only single-minded craftsmen and I was one of them. Or at least until I started scorching and torching away at everything.

This is one of the more succesful results: Baked and then torched vanilla custard with orange & brandy-marinated plum, yum yum.
