Chief's advice

Custard isn't that hard to make, if you follow these two tips to the letter:

Cook the custard you will cook, but without boiling it. Because the egg yolks must cook, but do not boil. Stir the custard constantly when it is on the fire


Do not exceed the temperature of 83oC, otherwise the cream will slice.

If this happens to you, pass the cream immediately in a blender or blender and then in a Chinese.
It should go smooth again, but you'll still have a little taste of overcooked eggs
To have an even creamier cream and yes a richer fat, you can mix the milk with cream
Perfume your custard with 1 c. matcha tea coffee, 1 tsp. kirsch coffee, grated Tonka bean, coffee, spices, by brewing orange zest in milk…. 
You can use custard to accompany a chocolate cake, snow eggs, vanilla ice cream
