kitchen torch- uses besides creme brulee?

The Pie Queen | Jan 14, 200211:00 AM     37

Hi all,

I received an awesome kitchen mini-blowtorch thing for Christmas this year. I'm thrilled as it combines two of my favorite things- cooking, and FIRE! I know they're used to carmelize the sugar atop creme brulee, which I'm looking forward to making. But what else can one do with this thing? Are there main courses that I might be able to put to the torch? Other desserts? It would be cool to make a multi-course meal in which everything was torched.

Thanks,
The Pie Queen
