Picture Dictionary: Crème Anglaise

Crème an·glaise

 [ 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.'
