NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CUSTARD DAY!!!

There are actually three National Foods celebrated today:  National Raspberry Popover Day, National Raspberry Tart Day & National Chocolate Custard Day.  Since I am a chocolate lover, I have chosen to talk about Chocolate Custard!!!

      • Custard is a variety of culinary preparations based on a cooked mixture of milk or cream and egg yolk.
      • Depending on how much egg or thickener is used, custard may vary in consistency from a thin pouring sauce (crème anglaise), to a thick pastry cream used to fill éclairs.
      • Due to the fact that it is a very fine organic powder, custard powder is EXPLOSIVE!
      •  The most common custards are used as desserts or dessert sauces and typically include sugar and vanilla.
      • Custard bases may also be used for quiches and other savory foods.

So go make some chocolate custard, just don’t blow it up. 🙂

My name is Anna Hattauer and I love to cook. I am a personal chef living in Maryland. I grew up in California, joined the United States Army right after high school, got married, raised three children while going to college and working full time. As a young military wife and mother, we didn't have the money to go out to eat on a regular basis and had to make each pay check stretch. I learned how to prepare meals that were delicious, while staying within budget. While working full-time in the corporate world with the usual 2-3 hour I-270 commute, coupled with school & sports events, scouts and taking care of three children, it was tough to find the time or the energy to come home and prepare healthy meals for my family. Being a military family, we have traveled to many places around the world. I love trying new foods, the challenge of cooking new recipes and having friends over for dinner as well as cooking for special events. After cooking for my friends and family for over 25 years, I decided that I wanted to share my love of food and make people happy, so I dropped the corporate chaos and attended a formal culinary school and became a certified personal chef. I am a member of the United States Personal Chef Association and I am licensed, insured and ServSafe certified.
