Stage 8 - 3 min.

After this time, stir the rice pudding energetically with a wooden spatula or spoon to break it up it and incorporate some air, as it will have solidified.

Stage 9 - 1 min.

Add 200 g Chantilly cream.

Stage 10 - 4 min.

Still using the spatula (or a soft spatula), fold in the cream gently.

Stage 11 - 5 min.
Chantilly rice pudding
Serve in individual ramekins.

Do not serve too cold, it is better just cool.
Step 8 takes quite a bit of elbow grease. If you don't feel up to it, you can use your mixer and fold some air into the rice pudding with the leaf (or flat) beater on slow speed.
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
Based on a recipe by Stéphane Jego.

Crème brulée
Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...
