Everything you need to make Crème Brulee brought to you by Master Chef Lisa! 

A little about Chef Lisa "I began my culinary journey in a wonderful rural community in Wyoming, where front of the house duties and tending bar ultimately brought me into the kitchen. In the early days of my career I always looked forward to the time I might get to spend subbing on the line or learning a new technique. Those small opportunities gave way to a fully-fledged love affair with the restaurant life---a world where creativity and hard work find their purest expression in the memories that food forges for people---and I have spent my last fifty years working at virtually every station in the restaurant world---Busser, Bartender, Server, Manager, Line Cook, Pastry Chef, Executive Chef, Food and Beverage Director, and Restaurant Owner.

Across many decades in the service industry, and after a culinary education that has unfolded in New York, Washington, California, Italy and France, I still take the most delight in being a part of the culture and camaraderie of a kitchen staff, and to share in this work for so long has been one of my life’s greatest privileges."
