Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 2 min.

Thinly slice 4 radishes. The ideal tool for this is a mandolin, but if you don't have one, a really sharp knife will do the job.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 7 min.

Divide out the topping and garnish with a few radish slices. Serve without delay.


If you don't have smoked trout, another type of smoked fish will work well, I'm thinking of smoked haddock in particular.

It is much better to use a Greek-style yoghurt for a smoother, creamier topping.

You can use other herbs instead of the coriander, such as dill, parsley or chervil.


Should be eaten the day it is made.

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...

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
