Please welcome DFB guest chef Carol E.! She’s tempting us this week with a delicious Crème Brûlée recipe from Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. So, let’s dig in…
My husband and I love exploring Disney restaurants since we are lucky enough to have Walt Disney World in our backyard. On one of my birthdays, he surprised me with dinner at Narcoossee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa!
I can still remember the taste of the real vanilla bean in the crème brûlée! It was so rich and creamy. Nothing like anything I had ever tasted. The perfect ending to the perfect meal!
