Custard is an important part of dessert recipes originating in many countries including England, France, Italy and Australia. Recipes involving custard include:
Most custard is cooked in a double boiler or heated very gently on the stove in a saucepan, but custard can also be steamed or baked in the oven in a steam bath or bain-marie.
Not all custards are sweet. The filling for a traditional quiche is made from a savoury custard incorporating cheese for flavouring.
