White Chocolate and Raspberry Crème brulee

Serves 10. Crème Brulee is claimed to be invented either in France as burnt cream, in Trinity College, Cambridge as Trinity Cream and Catalonia as Crema Catalana? Who knows? Try mixing a little raspberry coulis through the mix just before you fill the ramekins to give a ripple effect? You can use semi-skimmed milk instead of full fat if required, just use a little less? Use different seasonal fruits according to the season. Crème Brulee day is the 21st of July!
