The crack of caramel... the rich decadence of chocolate... the velvety slide of spoon through custard... our Cookery School's sumptuous Chocolate Crème Brûlée recipe is a dish that could melt a thousand hearts. And because we love you, here's the recipe.
Our founder, Frederick Belmont, had a taste for the finer things in life. In his spare time, he engaged in the fashionable pursuits of a 1930s Englishman gentleman - taking up flying lessons as a hobby, travelling first class on the maiden voyage of the Queen Mary, and collecting and commissioning art. And, of course, the legacy of his great love for fine food and drink lives on today.
January is a month of resolutions, new beginnings and positive commitments. And of all the passions in which your New Year’s efforts could be invested, there are few which repay you quite so bountifully as cooking. Learning to cook new things lays the foundations for a lifetime of shared experiences for you, your family and your friends.
If you have any questions about how to improve your cooking, tutors from our Cookery School will be taking to the road throughout January for a series of events at Bettys Café Tea Rooms. They'll demonstrate key kitchen skills and then take your questions. You can pop along and take advantage of their enormous baking brains between 10am and 3pm on the following dates: Harrogate (Wed 10th Jan & Fri 26th Jan), Ilkley (Thu 11th Jan & Sat 20th Jan), Northallerton (Thu 18th Jan), York (Tue 30th Jan & Thu 1st Feb), and Harlow Carr (Mon 12th Feb).
This is just one of the delicious recipes we teach at Bettys Cookery School. Have a go at home – we think you and your guests will love this moist and zesty cake.
