Because being healthy pays off when you're old while eating delicious food pays off RIGHT NOW!

Okay, we know it's not easy to eat dangerously these days. There is always someone telling you that you have to eat a balanced and healthy diet, whether it's your doctor, wife, mother, or other form of interference. Block it out! Tell yourself that the undue stress caused by trying to be healthy all the time will end up giving you a heart attack! it's true. You can quote us on that.

7 egg yolks
1 pint of fresh heavy cream
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of sugar
More sugar

Mash the egg yolks through a strainer in order to break them up properly. Add the heavy cream, the vanilla extract and the tablespoon of sugar. Cook the mixture in a double boiler (simply bring some water to a boil in a large pan and put a smaller pan with the mixture in the boiling water without letting water get into the smaller pan) mixing constantly until it thickens.

Pour the thickened mixture into individual porcelain dishes (approximately 2.5 cm in height and 7.5 cm in diameter) and put them in the refrigerator until the mixture is firm (like pudding).

Remove from the refrigerator one at a time and sprinkle generously with white sugar until the surface of the cream is completely covered. Now the fun begins. Take out your blow torch (what do you mean you don’t have a blow torch? How do you light your cigarettes? With a match? A lighter? God, how boring… The practicality and versatility of the blow torch cannot be fully appreciated until you own one. Go to the nearest tool shop and get one. If you want to just remain boring and ignorant of the joys of the blow torch, you may high broil the individual dishes until the desired effect is achieved, but don’t blame us if your Crème Brûlée is all soppy). Anyway, as we were saying, take your blow torch, pop it on and regulate air intake for a blue flame. Apply the flame to the sugar coating until it crystallizes and gets slightly browned.

Serves 6 (but may be eaten by only one!)
