Mom Tips

You can find it in good supermarkets, on refrigerated shelves, fresh milk cream sold in 500-gram plastic bottles. It is also found in 1-liter long-life boxes. There are brands such as Vigor, Tirolez, Leco, etc.

If you don’t have a torch, make a caramel sauce and spread a thin layer over the cream.
