I’ve yet to meet anyone who doesn’t like crème brûlée, and this slightly unusual variant will surprise and satisfy even a purist. The delicate balance between the basil and anise is a perfect accent to this most sublime dessert.
You can get the crème ready up to 2 days ahead, and it only takes a few minutes to caramelize the top before serving – this makes crème brûlée especially well suited to dinner parties.
And although making crème brûlée is fairly simple, baking it takes a bit more attention. The video clips are here to help you make the perfect crème, so be sure to watch them.
