Where can I buy creme brulee (french style) tomorrow on Good Friday
Do they have to be fresh? I know Costco used to sell them frozen - you sprinkle the sugar on and brulee it under the broiler, or better a torch. They were pretty good and quite inexpensive.
French Made Baking at Kingsway/Broadway is open on Good Friday and I've seen creme brûlée in their display case from time to time. However, I know their selection changes from day to day so you may want to call ahead.
Good luck intelguy!
too late for G Friday - however - next time - doesn't TJ's sell a frozen individ single-serve creme brulee - and then one ends up with all those little highly breakable terra cotta dishes -
maybe LRapper knows as they seem to go to TJ's more often than I do.
the costco idea is good too.
haven't looked as this is our big treat "out" ---- the round the small Pac NW world creme brulee taste test.
on a diff note - I realize time and space and dishes factor in to this - is Cr Brulee diff to make at home?

Not difficult to make. Takes some time (about an hour) and ingredients (cream, vanilla, eggs, sugar). Refrigerator space. Little dishes. And a torch.
I've eaten the Costco offerings. Pretty tasty, and without too many fake ingredients (if any). But I still prefer a well-prepared homemade version.
