"Creme Brulee and Rue Mouffetard"

Rue Mouffetard in the 5th arrondissement is awash with real foodie shops - we wandered into a petite bistro one evening about 7pm - ordered salad composee and creme brulee.
I must say this creme brulee was- to die for !! -the best I have ever tasted - all made and served by a sweet elderly lady and her husband.

On" Le-weekend" I tried to replicate her recipe in my own kitchen - it's all about getting that lovely crackling crunch as you pierce the caramel crust with the tip of a spoon
I think I succeeded!!
with-out the caramel crust - looks good but lacks character

I love rue Mouffetard too, but I only visited it in May this year .. first time :-) It was great seeing new places.

I have yet to do my blog posts about Paris, so much to blog about lately.. I had to take a break as it was getting alot to do.... !

FireintheBreeze - yes! you would absolutely love "Le Mouff" - it's very narrow & rustic,with cobblestones - You feel like you've stepped back in time -it's foodie heaven.

Anne: May would have been a good time to visit. but any-time's a good time to visit Paree !!

rue Mouffetard was my old stomping grounds last summer for a month. I love that place and had the great fun of visiting Sunday a week ago with friends. We watched the dancers and singers at the bottom of the hill, one of my most favorite Paris experiences.

I love crème brûlée too. And that crackling crunch is so easy to make. It's just suger that you have to burn with a flame.
