You know how it is exciting to find a unique gift for someone who has everything on an island with not much for shopping? Super exciting.
I thought we would end up giving our old faithful present Dairy Milk Chocolate, the plain one is Pedro’s favorite and I know we can never go wrong there. I started out buying the mid sized one at Mermaid store and figured I would hit couple of stores to try and make sure I got a good one that did not have that ‘old chocolate’ look that is all to common here from being hot and cold. I was glad to find a giant sized one at Green House in town, but still had my thinking cap on for something better and suddenly it hit me, Crème brûlée and a new local resource – our foodie friends Jane and Bruce that recently moved to Ambergris Caye.
I knew if anyone could help me solve my gift giving dilemma it would be Bruce. He and Jane do Mmm taste this food blog. I popped Jane fb messenger, one of the top 3 phone chat apps, especially here in Belize. She immediately helped work it out for Bruce to do a short notice order and make Peter’s favorite desert Crème brûlée.
That definitely qualified as a unique gift and Pedro gave it 2 thumbs up which is a high compliment from him. I have to say Bruce’s cooking for me is like one of my favorite novel based films, Like Water for Chocolate. He has an expressive magical style to his cooking and everything I have tried that he has made so far has been fantastic. That is no exaggeration either, last night I saw the looks on peoples faces and heard the comments of those that tried Bruce’s Crème brûlée. Thankfully Pedro was willing to share, though I would not have blamed him if he had kept it all to himself – it was that good 🙂
