National Pot de Creme Day


Did you know that today is National Pot de Creme Day!!!!   In honor of this day, I wanted to feature the stylish French Riviera-inspired eatery FIG & OLIVE’s signature Chocolate Pot de Crème!!
With eight locations across the country (New York, Los Angeles, Newport Beach, Chicago, and most recently, Washington D.C.), FIG & OLIVE is quickly becoming a household name, synonymous for celebrating the “Cuisine of the Sun” from the South of France. 
As one of diners’ most beloved dishes, pot de crème is a prime example of dessert trends returning to simple roots—showcasing the pure classic taste of chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, and other flavors without excessive garnishes and sauces. Dessert aficionados can mark the holiday with the restaurant’s comforting Chocolate Pot de Crème with Crunchy Praline Financiers and Vanilla Cream ($9), which stops short of over-indulgence with a shaving of orange zest and a modest-sized glass cup.

I thought it would be fun to include the recipe to this amazing dish!!!

Pot de Crème
Serves 10

2 cups Heavy Cream
1.5 cups Milk
4 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
3 Egg yolks
11 Oz of Dark 64% Chocolate

Bring heavy cream and milk light boil being cautious so as to not scorch. (about 190 degrees)
In a separate bowl whisk sugar into the yolks. Slowly temper yolks and add to milk/cream mixture. Mix in chocolate and bring entire mixture to 165 degrees. Then serve and chill overnight.
Vanilla Cream
1 cup Heavy Cream
1 Tablespoon of Confectioners’ Sugar
1 Vanilla Bean

In a mixing bowl whip cream, vanilla, and sugar together until soft peak.
