    Oops, I saw and responded to your other post first. But I guessed right, I thought this sounded like a question for a class. Good luck and I'm for real. Tell your instructor theres 4 ways...I promise.

    I just remembered something else, there's 5 ways. Mr. Caffet cooks his custards in a pastureizer....when he told us he works with batches large enough to fill 150 tortes at once.... we all wondered how? he trusts his pasturizer.....

    Welcome to Chef Talk, greenfoodie. You'll find lots to learn here, and we hope to learn from you, too.

    We have a great Culinary Students' forum and many others to choose from. Your current post would do better in a pastry forum, I think, so I'm moving it (with automatic forwarding) to that part of our board.

    We hope you'll take a look at all of the forums and get a feel for our friendly, knowledgeable group of food-lovers.

    Welcome!
