There’s nothing quite like the crack of the toffee when you tuck into a delicious creamy crème brulee.
It’s a dessert that’s loved far and wide, so much so, a day was created in its honour!
Friday July 27 is National Crème Brulee Day.
Yes, it is a thing! And it’s coming to Canberra!
The territory’s dedicated crème brulee business Get Crackin Crème Brulee are running a pop up stall at Rye Café in Braddon on Friday, where they hope to sell 400 of them!
Craig Ebeling and Ashleigh Gleeson of Damsel and Sprout set up the business, which has been going gangbusters at The Forage.
“Everyone seems to love them. Maybe it’s the custard, maybe it’s the crack of the toffee on top, but it’s something that everyone seems to love,” Craig said.
“Our feedback has been crazy. The Canberra public have been so good with us. We bake 1000 of them for the Forage and every single time they sell out.”
Craig, who was a chef for 10 years, spends hours in his kitchen baking the brulees – ensuring each one has that perfect creamy custard and toffee top!
“I bake on a Thursday night ready for the Friday. I spend about 6 hours in the kitchen from about 11pm till they’re done then get up and get selling,” he said.
So get down to Rye Café on Friday to get your brulee fix - they’re bound to fly off the shelf!
