Chocolate Pots De Creme
Oh la la! Dairy products are extremely important in France. My goodness, the dairy section in the markets is huge! Filled with a wonderful variety of yogurts, cheeses, pots de creme, creams, the list goes on. So for National Pots De Creme Day, August 27th, I thought I'd treat myself and my family to Chocolate Pots de Creme. Chocolate pudding sort of ...maybe it's my memory imagination but I like this better!
I have adapted this recipe from a traditional one I used while living in France. The original came from LaRousse De La Cuisine and called for 2 eggs and 6 whites, milk and creme fraiche. Since I cannot get creme fraiche in Venice Florida, I have adjusted the recipe considerably and rather than bringing the mixture to a boil and chilling, I used a bain marie which I think is a bit simpler. I do hope you try these pots de creme and let me know what you think!
