Chocolate pot-de-creme: 5 steps to happiness

January 21st, 2013 | Posted by Gregoire Michaud in Daily life... | Recipes

If you look at it from a different angle, happiness doesn’t require any material things… or maybe, it does… if you call chocolate cream material, then yes… a substantial material with an ephemeral life, like butterflies – no, no relation here, except that both are beautiful! :)

A week ago, I was asked to post a recipe in 5 steps on Instagram, which I did… It was only after I posted the photos that I realized its impact. With 5 steps, there is not much that can be done, yet, if there was anything to be done in 5 steps that can bring you to happiness (no! I mean in food! ;)) then the chocolate pot de creme is a very strong contender to the top spot.

The key to happiness in 5 steps…

1

1) boil 120ml cream, 10g sugar and 1 vanilla bean cut lengthwise

2

2) add 28g dark chocolate (with strong cocoa flavor)

3

3) add one beautiful egg yolk (like that one!)

4

4) pour in a glass and bake in water bath at 170C for 25 minutes (eventually remove the vanilla bean)

5

5) once cooled at room temperature garnish with soft whipped cream, crumble and dry berries: eat!
