This crème brûlée is a great recipe to make for the fall season. The use of ginger and nutmeg along with pumpkin gives a twist to the classic crème brûlée. You can make this up to a week in advance and refrigerate. Just remember to torch it with a brûlée torch only when you are about to serve. I strongly suggest using a brûlée torch and not use your oven broiler. You can find a decent torch on Amazon, and it is a great way to impress your friends.
I learned this Chicken, Lemon, and Olives in Tagine recipe from my dear friend Shaliha, who lives in Dijon, France. I paid a visit to her this summer. Her parents are from Algeria, and this is her mom's recipe. A spice blend in this recipe is her mom's creation, and I have attempted to make my version of the spice blend.
