Crema Catalana

Crema Catalana is also called Crema de Sant Josep, or St. Joseph's Cream. It's the dessert traditionally prepared on March 19th, St. Joseph's Feast Day, which is the day Father's Day in Spain.

Crema Catalana is the Catalan version of the famous French dessert, crème brulée. The region is known as Catalunya, Catalonia or Catalaluña, and is the northeastern region of Spain, bordering on France. The Catalan language and culture are found on both sides of the French-Spanish border, so it's not a surprise that the dessert would have a French, Spanish and Catalan name. It is an easy, rich and creamy dessert, with a crunchy sugar crust on top.
