    Wow, an absolutely gorgeous brulee and presentation!

    1. Thank you so much Kathryn, that’s very kind 🙂

  2. Hannah says:

    I’d never thought of putting rosemary in a dessert but like you, it’s got to be one of my favourite herbs. I’ll have to give it a try! I am in awe of your photography too 😀

    1. Thank you so much Hannah! Thats such a lovely thing to say, you’ve really made me smile. You’ll love the rosemary flavour in this brûlée if you’re a rosemary addict like me. You should also check out for her rosemary, choc chip and sea salt cookies – YUM! 🙂

  3. Rosemary is an interesting addition! I would have never thought of it. I did a lavender creme brulee and really loved the herby notes it added.

    1. Oooo yes lavender sounds like it would be lovely too. Did you just a specific culinary lavender or just what was in the garden? I love the slightly savoury tone the herbs give the sweet brûlée. Thanks for visiting 😀

  4. I’ve used rosemary in a chocolate dessert before and that worked very well, so I think this sounds delicious. That, and the fact that creme brulee is my favourite dessert 😉

    1. Thanks so much Tania. Rosemary is beautiful in sweet dishes – it’d be amazing in a chocolate dessert, I’d love to have a go at that recipe! 🙂

    I love rosemary and really love creme brulee, but have never thought of mixing the two flavors. Wow! What an interesting idea! This is going to be added to my list of new recipes to try.

  6. Julie says:

    I would never have thought to use Rosemary in creme brulee. What an awesome idea! I’m a huge fan of this dessert too. Thanks for your creative recipe! Can’t wait to try it soon!

    1. Thanks so much Julie. The slightly woody rosemary flavour goes beautifully in the sweet creamy custard. I’d love to know what you think if you do try it 🙂

  7. Katrin says:

    I love the idea of this recipe! I bet the rosemary flavour takes the creme brulee to the next level. And the photography! Gorgeous.

    1. Thank you so so much Katrin, what a lovely compliment! x The rosemary flavour makes these little puddings hard to resist, that’s for sure!

  8. Michele says:

    My crust on creme brule” has never looked that perfect! Wow! I am definitely trying your recipe to see if I can duplicate it!

    1. Thanks so much Michele. Let me know how you get on – I’m no expert but found that I needed to make it quite thick for it to crust like this without burning. I used more sugar on top than I expected, but it was worth it 🙂

  9. Erin says:

    Creme brulee is one of my all time favorite desserts. I love your upgrade to it.

    1. Thanks so much Erin 🙂

  10. Michelle says:

    Lis, your photography is beautiful! I also love rosemary, so I must try your recipe next time I cook some creme brulee!

    1. Thank you so much Michelle! If you love rosemary I’m sure you’ll enjoy this dessert 🙂

  11. I am drooling over the usage of rosemary in this dish! Seriously. What a fun way to include it into something sweet. My family is gonna go crazy over this when we try it – thanks!

    1. Thank you so much Erin! I’d love to hear if your family enjoys it 🙂
