Take a good look at this photo. I know, it’s not easy to orient yourself to what’s going on there, because, silly me, I dove in with my spoon before remembering to take a picture! But that’s how good it looked; I could not restrain myself.
But I quicky regained my blog consciousness and staved off friend Betty from also diving in while I took a quick shot. This, my friends, is the chocolate crème brulée from the Indian Rock Inn of Upper Black Eddy, PA.
After a very good lunch (most had roast duck; I had onion soup and lobster cakes), the four of us decided to share two orders of the chocolate crème brulée. Here is what the brilliant chef (Val Roy Gerischer) did: He put very rich and creamy chocolate “pudding” in the ramekin, topped it with – get this! – marshmallow fluff, and then sugared and torched the top. Rather like a s’more, but much, much better!
