Floating Island



  • 2 cups of milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean


Beaten egg whites:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups of milk for cooking




1 Place the egg yolks and the sugar in a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to whiten the mixture.

2 Bring the milk to a boil with the vanilla bean in a CRISTEL saucepan.

3 Once the milk is hot, pour it over the yolks and pour the mixture back into the saucepan. Cook on low heat, stirring continuously with a spatula so that the eggs do not coagulate until reaching 183°F (84°C).

4 Pour the custard into a bowl and stir regularly as it cools.


Beaten egg whites:


5 Beat the egg whites with the sugar to make a meringue.

6 Simmer 2 cups of milk in the saucepan.

7 Use two large spoons to form oval-shaped dumplings with the egg whites, then poach them in the milk.

8 Cook them for 1 minute on each side.

9 Drain the egg whites on a paper towel.


Serve the custard cold with egg white and liquid caramel.
