Creme brulee ingredients/equipment question?

Momo | Aug 24, 2005 12:57 AM


I was wondering if anyone have recommendations on where to get affordable vanilla beans? I purchased one bean from WholeFoods Palo Alto for $5 but the recipe requested 2 beans and this makes the creation of 6 creme brulees very expensive.

Also, what's a great source/brand for a propane torch?

I have tried out the Creme Brulee recipe from "Michael Schlow's - It's About Time" and it was superbe. The cookbook also has other fine recipes and I highly recommend it.
