National Crème Brûlée Day and Enjoy

National Crème Brûlée Day - Today is National Crème Brûlée Day!

The English refer to this delight as "burnt cream," but the name crème brûlée sounds so much better!
The origins of this dish are vague, but the name first appeared in Francois Massialot's cookbook in 1691. "Trinity Cream" or "Cambridge Burnt Cream" became a traditional dessert at Trinity College in Cambridge during 1879 when a version of crème brûlée was served with the college arms branded into the cream top. Crème brûlée is a five-ingredient French delicacy. Rich vanilla custard is topped with a hard "burnt sugar" top.
