Sous Vide Crème Anglaise

Thanks to Olly Rouse we have been enjoying a delicious Crème Anglaise which we particularly like poured over our home grown rhubarb. It makes a light and refreshing summer pudding which is quick and easy to prepare for dinner parties. This recipe makes 500ml of Crème Anglaise. Strong aromatics are produced as a result of the infusion of the ingredients.


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 120g caster sugar
  • 250ml milk
  • 250ml double cream
  • 1/4 vanilla bean seeds


Combine all of the ingredients while cold. Pour into a vacuum bag and seal under full vacuum. Poach in a Clifton Water Bath set at 82°C for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, shake the bag vigorously and cool as quickly as possible ~ or use as required.
Label and store at temperatures below 3°C.
Pour over vanilla sous vide rhubarb which has been cooked in aCliftonwater bath at 61°C for 20 minutes to make a delicious pudding.
