Flo Makanai at Makanai, Bio, Bon, Simple requested a vanilla pudding or vanilla custard, free of the top 8 most common allergens, that was also rice-free, potato-free, and corn-free too. This was a challenge! Additionally, Flo lives in France, where I don’t believe she can purchase my go-to: Ener-G Egg Replacer. I really had to put on my thinking cap for this one. Allergen-free, vegan, no rice, potato, or corn… international shopping restrictions… I didn’t have a clue.
What I did have, however, was a kitchen blow torch. So I decided to commit myself to a Crème Brulee, and figure it out as I went along.
