Recipe: Satsuma Pot-de-Crème

Satsuma Pot-de-Crème Smooth and sensual, custard-based desserts rightfully belong on any Valentine's Day menu. You'll certainly want this unique and elegant pot-de-crème from New Orleans's Café Adelaide on yours. Chef Chris Lusk sweetens it with satsuma, a delicate Japanese orange that came to Louisiana in the 18th century. In addition to cream, Lusk uses Calpico, a milky, yogurt-flavored drink from Japan, which enriches the custard's tangy flavor. Get the recipe here.
