Chocolate Crème Dessert & Lavender Fields

Chocolate Creme Dessert

If you have never been to Southern France yet or have been there and longing to see this beautiful region once again; allow me to tag you along with me as we take a short side-trip there in land of wine and cheeses.

Southern France is famous for its Middle ages Roman ruins, arena and beautiful paysages of blue sky, rosemary and thymes that is magnificently illustrated in the paintings of the world renowned painter Cezanne. This region is also home to pristine and turquoise blue water of Mediterranean sea, singing cicadas, delicious bouillabaise soup, sweet calisson (melon and marzipan candies) and of course the fragrant flowers of lavander.

For this edition of my Friday Dose of Chocolate, I'll be sharing with you the wonders of nature that we saw one saturday afternoon while having an impromptu picnic on the blazing road of tour de France.

Chocolate Pudding (Crème Dessert au Chocolat
recipe of Cyril Lygnac

2 eggs
4 egg yolks
55 grams of icing sugar
15 cl of milk
35 cl of heavy cream
120 g of dark chocolate

Preheat the oven at 130° celsius. In a salad bowl beat the eggs, 4 egg yolks and sugar together. In a casserole bring to a boil the milk and heavy cream. Turn off the fire and add the chocolate. Mix them well. Pour gently the chocolate mixture on the beaten eggs and sugar mixture. Mix them well. Filter the liquid in order to have a smooth texture. Cook in the oven for 35 minutes. Then wait for about an hour before pouring them on your individual serving glasses or bowl. Put in the fridge for at least 3 hours before serving. You can top it with fresh fruits of your choice.







No words can describe the beauty and fragrant hidden in this field.
Your eyes will make you believe you are staring the blue sea.
A memory and scent that will linger forever.

Oh, the famous fields of lavender! I'd tag along any time, Dhanggit. : )

This recipe is a lovely cross between custard and mousse! (I think that might make it pudding. : D)

Oh, the lavender fields! Just as beautiful as the fields of sunflowers in the south of France, too. I have three small lavender plants in my garden, which remind me just the tiniest bit of our drives through France in the summer time.
