A culinary torch is much more than a kitchen appliance that gets thrown to the back of the shelf. It’s practical and can be used for every meal. For breakfast, you can transform a plain bowl of oatmeal or add sizzle to fruit, get the mid-day pick-me-up that everyone craves at lunchtime, and for dinner skip the messy outdoor grill and blister tomato and pepper skins with a blast of butane instead.
Caramelizing the sugar atop creme brulee is what culinary torches are commonly known for, but they can offer so much more. Here are some cool ways to make a multi-course meal in which everything can be torched.
Crunching and Crisping Throughout the Day
Do you really need a reason to play with fire first thing in the morning?
