Crème Caramel LA Booth, Silver Lake Farmer’s Market, Silver Lake , CA
Stop #2 of our Filipino tour takes me and blogger pal Karena Higgins to the Silver Lake Farmer’s Market to Créme Caramel LA, where Pinoy baker Kristine de la Cruz introduces us to her adapted family recipe of the French chilled custard. Along with her traditional crème caramel, she uses Filipino inspired flavors like Buko Pandan, Ube (purple yam) and Mango to present desert lovers with a fresh take on the classic dessert. Her flavors are rich, sweet and tasty and are sure to turn any previous notion of flan you may have had, upside down.
Growing her company from a solid business plan, utilizing her marketing skills from a previous job, and applying the aid from her local community, Kristine is one savvy bussiness owner who knows the secret to success: Patience and Perseverance.
When we first met with her early this Spring, Créme Caramel LA was in nine local California farmer’s markets and as of this post, she has booths set up in 14 with plans to be in 20 markets by the end of the summer.
Watch her story and be sure to look out for Créme Caramel LA at your neighborhood farmer’s market!
It’s so good. Trust me, you’ll swoon.
