NATIONAL POTS DE CREME DAY 

NATIONAL POTS DE CREME DAY IS CELEBRATED EACH YEAR ON AUGUST 27, ACROSS THE UNITED STATES. 

This delicious French desert is a loose french custard dating back to the 17th century.  It’s name means “pot of custard” or “pot of creme” which is also referring to the white porcelain cups in which the dessert is traditionally served in.

Pot de creme is made by combining eggs, egg yolks, cream, milk and typically either vanilla or chocolate flavoring.  The mixture is baked, in the porcelain cups, in a water bath at a low temperature.
