A craving for white chocolate chai creme brulee

Give me a few short hours with my earphones, a good book and a never ending supply of these creme brulee's and I will become one happy girl.

Delicate flavours of cinnamon, star anise, cardamom and white chocolate baked in tiny pots and encased in burnt sugar...

... I would stop at two, If I could.

These is literally no time to relax these past few weeks and I am impatiently waiting for my 2-week holiday soon. I'm jumping in my shoes.

In the mean time I'll leave you with this song that I have been cooking to and a recipe that I have been making for dessert.
