Calling all pyromaniacs! Here is how you can turn your fire fetish into an acceptable eccentricity. A culinary torch has far more uses than for just caramelizing the top of a crème brûlée; definitely a kitchen gadget worth investing in. It’s a justifiable way to engage in two taboos: playing with your food and playing with fire…what could be better? Keep your butane on hand and be sure to practice kitchen safety when handling the torch – it is a power tool for foodies after all.
Can you take the heat? Here is how you can brûlée all day from breakfast to dessert:
1. Oatmeal Brûlée
Like crème brûlée, but for breakfast
Add cinnamon sugar and torch to make your morning more interesting
Roasted Pepper Fajitas
Fire up your peppers for a fun fiesta
1. Vegetable soup
Because who doesn’t love melted cheese?
2. Miso Eggplant
An Asian twist on torching
1. Rum-Soaked Pineapple
Fire and serve with almonds and coconut gelato for a tropical treat
2. S’mores 3 Ways
Bring s’mores indoors by torching instead of roasting
1. Bacon Bloody Mary
Set your bacon ablaze – have your brunch and drink it too
2. Flaming Shots
Hey there hot shot – don’t forget the higher the proof, the easier the ignition
