Happy Valentines Day, make a Crème Brûlée for love

What is the date today? It is the 14th of February. It is the day that we would learn from the swans. "why?" "Why not?" Is it sounds a bit buzzard? Would it make any sense if I told you that English swans are not shy of a public display of affection? Definitely,It must be a great day for thousands of girls and boys who are in a sweet relationship. Let me guess, you may have already booked a fantastic restaurant for a romantic night, or you may buy a huge brunch of red rose or blue violets in to your trunk to give a big surprise for the girl; or just a box of chocolate would be sweet enough for the lovers...
There are three big words must be the theme of this Valentine's Day's dessert. Sweet, Heart and Love. traditionally, people will express their love by presenting flowers or sending Valentines Card. In modern days, the figure of the winged Cupid, heart-shaped outline, chocolate, doves would also be the popular symble on the special occasion.  On this special day, why not surprise your loved ones with a classic French dessert-Crème Brulee made by yourself? or if you still asked God" Why didn't Cupid aimed his arrow at me", don't be sad and grasp this sweet moment to treat yourself with this dessert on the sweet day...
