How to make it

  • Crème Anglaise
  • -Boil the milk with half of the sugar and the vanilla bean (previously cut in half lengthwise and seeds scraped into the cream).
  • -Separately, whisk the yolks and the remaining half of sugar rigorously in a mixing bowl.
  • This will allow the yolk not to become too grainy and blend well with the cream.
  • -Once the cream is boiling, whisk 1 cup of the cream with the yolks, then pour the yolk mix back in the cream.
  • -Finish cooking on low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until it thickens.
  • You will know it is ready when you pass your finger on the back of the spoon and the mark remains.
  • -Remove the vanilla bean and place in the fridge.
  • Meringue
  • -Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray.
  • -In a Kitchen Aid mixer, or using a hand electric whisk, mix the egg whites until they start to get a bit firm.
  • Add the sugar and continue whisking until very firm.
  • -Fill a pastry bag with meringue.
  • Mold into four-inch circles on parchment paper.
  • Place in the fridge.
  • -In a large pot, boil water with a few drops of white vinegar.
  • -Then very carefully remove each meringue from the paper and place on surface of simmering water.
  • -Poach this way for 5 minutes then flip and repeat procedure.
  • -Remove with a spider or flat skimmer, situate on wax paper or parchment paper, and place back in the fridge.
  • Caramel
  • -In a pan, melt sugar with water and cook until golden brown.
  • -Turn off the heat and let cool down for a minute or two.
  • -Prepare a tray with parchment paper, spray with cooking spray.
  • -Using a fork, dip in the caramel and drizzle circle-wise on the paper.
  • Make a few extra of those in case they break.
  • Let cool down in a dry place.
