Remarks

Mixing carrots of different colours makes the dish prettier, but does not affect the flavour, so is not essential.

You can use a poultry stock instead of the vegetable stock, which will give the carrots a more marked flavour.

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...
