Picture Dictionary: Crème Anglaise
[Fr.krem ahn-glez] Custard; vehicle for iles flottantes; manna from heaven.
This is my nephew, Alex. Last Saturday, he discovered Crème Anglaise. I gave him a spoonful of mine (I ordered the ile flottante and it came on a LAKE of custard). He tried it,
gave me a beatific smile,
and came back for more.
Between blissed-out smiles he would look at me (or perhaps the custard?) adoringly as if to say, 'I don't care who you are, but if you're handing out this stuff, I think I love you.'
