Crème Brulee first appeared in a recipe book produced by chef Francois Massialot in 1691. It literally translates into English as ‘Burnt Cream’ and is one … Continue reading July 22 – Crème Brulee Day
I do love a Daiquiri and was delighted to see that the lovely alcoholic beverage has its own day. The drink was invented by a man called Jennings Stockton Cox in Daiquiri, Cuba (who knew it was a place?) in the 1900s.
