Look for vanilla pods, cocoa powder or spices in your pantry and put your imagination at work. It’s very easy to flavor a custard with few ingredients, they are always appreciated for dessert or tea time.
  • Add leftover egg yolks into your quiche fillings or savory tarts. They will be easier to cut with a filling that stay firm.
