Ile flottante



- 2 cups of milk
- 4 egg yolks
- ½ cup of sugar
- 1 vanilla pod

White in Snow:

- 4 egg whites
- ½ cup of sugar
- 2 cups of milk for cooking



1 / Place the egg yolks and the sugar in a salad bowl then whisk vigorously to blanch them.

2 / Boil the milk with the vanilla pod in a CRISTEL saucepan.

3 / Once the milk is hot, pour over the yolks and return to the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a spatula so that the yolks do not coagulate until 183°F.

4 / Pour the custard into a container and let cool, stirring regularly.


White in Snow:

5 / Whip the egg whites with the sugar to obtain a meringue.

6 / Heat 1/2 l of milk to a simmer in the saucepan.

7 / Using two large spoons, make quenelles then poach in the milk.

8 / Cook 1 min on one side then turn over, and cook 1 min on the other side.

9 / Drain the egg whites on absorbent paper.

Serve the cold cream with a snow white accompanied by a liquid caramel.

Bon appétit!
