I thought I’d hate crème brûlée right up until the very moment I tried it. That was back in 2002 in a little boutique hotel’s restaurant in San Francisco, and it was chocolate. My eyes just about rolled back in my head with the first bite and ever since it’s been one of my favorite desserts. A few of the recipes below are small twists on what’s become a classic while others are further departures, but I’m betting every last one is delicious.
