Debbie's Dessert Tips!
Do I have to purchase expensive liqueurs? Despite popular myth, expensive liqueurs are not necessary to create these exquisite desserts. However, you should not cook with a liqueur you wouldn t drink.
How much alcohol remains in the desserts after cooking? Alcohol does not burn off as quickly as most people tend to think. If you do not want a lot of alcohol remaining in your dish, flaming alone won t cut it. To achieve the greatest alcohol loss, either simmer or refrigerate for a long period of time.
How much liqueur do I need to buy? Only a small amount of liqueur can lend a delightful aromatic subtlety to a dessert. If you do not wish to purchase the larger bottles, most liquor stores have minis that hold just the right amount to enhance the flavors of the other ingredients.
What s the best caramelizing method? For best results, use the Cheflamme hand-held butane torch and develop your skills by using small amounts of sugar first. If using the broiler method, remember to then place chilled custards in a pan filled with ice to ensure cold, firm custards.
How do I make restaurant-quality chocolate garnishes? To make chocolate curls, soften the chocolate in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then pull a vegetable peeler along the side of the chocolate, allowing curls to fall gently. And voila―a beautiful garnish.About the Author:
