A 'Sweet' Dessert

A couple of months ago, I sampled some créme caramel from Créme Caramel LA.  If you don't know what it is, it's the French version of flan (or vice versa), which is a custard dessert with a layer of caramel on top.  Without getting into all of the details, flan is different in many parts of the world.  So, I'll just refer to it as créme caramel...

My first tasting of Créme Caramel LA,
thanks to Nina Rodecker

I checked their website and found them
 at the Barnsdall Art Park Farmers Market
on Wednesdays

Sampled all of the créme caramels flavors
and all were very good.

Which made it hard to pick one...
All with great flavor
and not too sweet.

While I was there...

This couple walks up, tries samples of the
créme caramel, they end up purchasing 2 of them.
Not more than 8 feet away, they finished their créme 
caramel AND returned to purchase another 2.  

Nice to have return customers like that...

Bread Pudding too...

I've only seen pictures of their bread pudding,
until I tasted it...

Loved the Caramalized Bacon Bread Pudding!

A lot of places have a very strong bacon flavor in their products,
most are so-so.
But this one has a great bacon flavor throughout.
I really loved this one!

Today's Menu

They have their standard flavors
and special flavors,
so check the board.

Today's Fall Flavors...

Hard to believe it's Fall in Los Angeles,
it's Sunny and 82º

If you can't make it out to one of their farmers markets,
you can order directly from them
or  visit
and save room for dessert

 I got to meet the entire company!

Check their website for the current 
farmers market locations

I love when small businesses have a game plan
and great tasting products.
I've seen too many that don't have one or the other,
and in some cases both.
I guess that's why I get called...

I'm a Fan!
