Crème brulee is a classic dish of smooth custard with a caramelized sugar topping. The origin of crème brulee is hotly debated. Trinity College in Cambridge, England contends to be the first producer of the dessert in the 1600's when they called it Cambridge burnt cream or Trinity cream. The college has an iron with the official college crest which is used to burn the sugar top.
