The mussels can be pre-cooked either very simply ("à la marinière"), or with more flavour, such as "à l'escabèche" (a tangy Spanish method with vinegar).

You can use a simple mayonnaise or rémoulette dressing instead of the rémoulade.

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...

Tiramisu
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.
