Pumpkin Flan with Salted Caramel Sauce
Rich and Satisfying
It feels like the whole world is about to go topsy-turvy come Friday. I recognize that many of us have different views and apprehensions about what is about to happen, both in the US and abroad. No matter where you are on the political spectrum, change is about to happen, and it can be anxiety provoking. For this reason, I put together a couple of menus from Gathering Flavors over the years―grounding meals fit for your mood in the coming weeks. You can find them here.
No matter how you feel or which menu you choose, consider making this Pumpkin Flan with Salted Caramel Sauce for dessert. Flan—an egg custard—is filled with the flavor and texture of pumpkin and topped with a rich caramel sauce. A sweet and rich dessert, it’s simple to prepare and keeps well in the fridge for a few days. Eat it chilled, straight from the baking ramekin, or dress it up by flipping it over onto a fancy plate, letting the sauce ooze around this fabulous confection. Add a cup of hot coffee or tea to the enjoyment.

I look forward to seeing you in my kitchen, gathering flavors, soon.
