A traditional St Joseph’s Day dessert which tastes fantastic on any day of the year!
Traditionally, crema catalana was made only on St Joseph’s Day (the Spanish equivalent of Father’s Day), on 19 March, however these delicious desserts taste great on any day.
Spanish crema catalana and the French crème brûlée are different in some respects however the two are very similar. It is made from a mixture of milk and egg and is set by chilling, while crème brûlée is made with cream and is set by baking in the oven, often in a bain-marie. The effect on people is the same: this dessert is always on the menu because not only is it hugely popular, it is delicious!
