Pot de creme is a loose French dessert custard dating to the 17th Century. The name means "pot of custard" or "pot of creme", which also refers to the porcelain cups in which the dessert is served. It is usually looser than other custards, flans, or crème caramel.
Pot de crème is made with eggs, egg yolks, cream, milk, and a flavor, often vanilla or chocolate. The milk and cream are heated and flavored, then mixed into the whisked eggs and egg yolks. The mixture is strained and poured into cups, which are then baked in a water bath at low heat.
We're delighted to offer these lovely pot de creme serving sets.
