What is a custard, anyway? It is a delicious dessert, yes, but technically speaking it's a liquid that has been thickened or set via the coagulation of egg protein. The key to perfect custards is to keep the internal temperature of the mixture below 185 °F / 85 °C—above that point, they have a tendency to curdle. And curdling, dear friends, is the bane of any custard baker.

Enter sous vide. By cooking custards in a sous vide bath, we can precisely dictate the temperature to which they are heated, thus eliminating the risk of a curdled dessert. We prepare our Crème Brûlée—along with other delightful eggy treats, scroll down for those recipes—in small Mason jars, so the desserts emerge individually portioned in their own adorable vessel. Before serving, we add a golden-brown layer of caramelized sugar using a blowtorch—don't worry if you've never tried it, we'll walk you through the technique. The result: a sunshine-hued dessert with a deliciously crackly top and a whisper of elegant sweetness, easy to whip up (even if you're serving a large group) and eminently satisfying

 

Equipment

Blowtorch,

Tea strainer, or other fine-mesh strainer (optional)

 

5 to 6 servings x4

Timing 3 hrs
Adjust based on recipe x4
 
  640 g Egg yolk, about 11 yolks
  360 g Granulated Sugar, plus more for dusting
    12 g Salt,
2400 g Heavy cream
 
Heat water bath to 176 °F / 80 °C.
Crème Brûlée
 

Combine yolks, sugar, and salt

640 g Egg yolk,
360 g Granulated Sugar,
12 g Salt
 

Whisk until smooth.

Heat cream; slowly pour cream into egg mixture.

2400 g Heavy cream
 

In a pot on the stove, heat cream to 158 °F / 70 °C.

Begin slowly pouring cream into the egg mixture—introducing the cream slowly ("tempering") allows us to combine ingredients without causing the eggs to curdle. You can increase the pour rate gradually as you go.

When you're tempering liquids together in a bowl, it helps to make a sturdy foundation for the bowl, so it doesn't wiggle around while you're holding a pot of hot liquids above it.

Here's the technique: Dampen a kitchen towel. Twist the ends of the towel and make a circle on the table that's big enough to hold your bowl. Place the bowl inside the circle.

Strain the mixture, then allow to rest for 20 to 30 minutes so that bubbles have time to rise to the top and dissipate.

Skim away any remaining bubbles.

Cast 600 g of mixture into each jar, pouring in a slow, low, steady stream. Pouring too quickly, or from too high above the jar, will cause bubbles to form on the surface of the custard.

If bubbles form on the surface of the custard as you pour, lightly flash the top with a blowtorch to remove them. Remember to do this quickly, using a pulsing action. You can easily cook the eggs on the surface if you torch too long.

 
Place the lid on the jar. Twist the lid until "finger-tip tight," meaning it's just barely closed, but you can still open it easily.

To close the jars "finger-tip tight," place the lid on top of the jar, then twist the band to tighten using just your fingertips. When you begin to feel resistance, twist once in the opposite direction, then once more to tighten.

Closing the jars until "finger-tip tight" means that air will be able to escape from the jars when you submerge them in water. If you close them too tightly, the trapped air will press against the glass and could crack or break your jars.

Place jars carefully into the sous vide water bath and cook for one hour.

Prepare an ice bath.

Remove jars from the bath and place in an ice bath to chill.

Once the jars are cold they will last up to a week, sealed, in the refrigerator.

There's isn't just one correct way to create a crackly top layer of caramelized sugar on your creme brûlée—every chef uses different sugars, torches, and techniques. Use the steps below to get started, and then customize your approach depending on your tools and preferences.

Remove the lid from the jar. If condensation has pooled on the surface of the custard, gently dab with the corner of a paper towel to remove.

Using a small sieve or your fingers, dust a layer of sugar over the surface of the custard. The more sugar you use, the more crunchy and caramelized your top layer will be.

Set blowtorch to a low gas-release setting. Holding the torch in your dominant hand, and the jar in the other, focus the flame on the custard, while rotating the jar. Control the heat by moving the torch closer and further from the custard—the distance should range from between 10 and 24 inches.

Once you have achieved the color you want, allow the sugar to set for five minutes. This will give it time to fully harden and reach its full crunchy potential.

Julgo que é mais importante mencionar alguns factos importantes como surgiu este gosto pela cozinha, onde tem origem esta vontade de “ser alguém” no mundo da cozinha?

Comecei a cozinhar muito cedo com a ausência da minha mãe. Não quero mentir, não sou muito bom em datas, mas com sete ou oito anos já cozinhava alguma coisa e com 10 anos cozinhava a sério e com 15 anos já era um cozinheiro por necessidade.

Quando comecei a trabalhar nesta área, aliás, quiseram-me na Cozinha por mero acaso, o Cozinheiro para uma festa de Fim de Ano de uma Empresa de Eventos, despediu-se a ultima hora e quem acham que foram buscar. É mesmo, como eu digo na “hora certa no local certo”. Tentei durante estes anos todos ser cada vez melhor e aperfeiçoar-me. Tinha uma vocação natural, é o que me diziam, um dos meus grandes segredos do empenho e do suposto sucesso que tenho tido é nunca me ter desviado deste caminho de ser já um cozinheiro chefe como ter um Dom para tal e ponto final.
