creme brulee branding iron

creme brulee branding iron at Savoy restaurant

I absolutely love this, a creme brulee branding iron that is heated in the fireplace of Savoy, where it’s served. According to the owner: “It adds a nice ‘fireplace flavor’ to the dessert”.

    So dramatic! I love it! Incidentally, I also love the “housekeeping” — very cute new look. Love the new typestyle.

    Wow, that’s embarrassing. I typed Sarah when I meant to write to you, Megan. Sorry, my friend’s name popped into my head while I was writing. I was thinking how much she would like your blog. Anyways, sorry about that!

    !!! I was there a few months ago, and it /does/ taste amazing with that fireplace flavor.

    I love Savoy. We go every time we’re in New York, it’s a tradition now.

    I saw an iron similar to this on an episode of Jose Andres Made in Spain… I kept rewinding it to hear the “pfft pfft” of the iron hitting the top of the dessert. VERY COOL.
