National Vanilla Custard Day

National Vanilla Custard Day is dedicated to a delicious treat that is highly appreciated by sweet lovers from all over the world! Vanilla custard has a delicate structure and a vanilla flavor that cannot be confused with anything else. It is used in many desserts that adorn the festive tables.

The History

There is little information about when custard was invented. Historians suggest we owe its origin to Ancient Rome. In the 19th century, quiches were at their height of popularity.

By the way, this is not necessarily a dessert – the cream can be not only sweet, but also fish, meat and any other. It all depends on your imagination!

Prepare it in a water bath, constantly monitoring the process. If the product is digested, then the substance coagulates and cannot be consumed. The cook controls the consistency by adding a certain number of eggs or a thickener (for example, starch) to the mixture.

Interesting facts

  • Initially, vanilla custard was not perceived as a separate dessert, but existed only in pies;
  • ‎Culvers is a chain of restaurants in America. This place has been serving delicious vanilla custard for years;
