Bon Apetite : The Greatest Spanish Dessert

Flan Pudding

Serves 6-8

For the caramel:

1/3 cup sugar
3 tb sp. water
For the Flan:
1.5 cups heavy cream
1.5 cups milk (w/ 2% fat) 
3 whole eggs
3 egg yolks
1/2 cups sugar
1 t.sp. vanilla extract
Turn your oven to 350F.
Line a baking sheet with paper towel or just a regular kitchen towel.
Boil some water in a teakettle.
To make the caramel:
In a small saucepan combine sugar and water and turn the heat to medium-high. Whisk the mixture until sugar is completely dissolved.
Turn the heat to low and let it cook until the caramel is amber in color
Meanwhile get your ramekins ready.
Distribute the caramel evenly between the ramekins, covering the bottom completely.
Set aside.

To make the flan:  
Boil the cream and milk together. Set it aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, egg yolks and sugar together for a minute or so.
Add the vanilla extract and give it another whisk.
Continuing to whisk, pour a quarter of the milky liquid into the eggs and mix it well together (this is to temper the eggs so that they don’t curdle).
Whisking all the while, pour the rest of the milk into the custard, to incorporate everything together.
Using a large spoon, take off the foam off the top of the custard
Distribute the custard among the prepared ramekins.
Put the ramekins into the lined baking sheet.
Put the baking sheet into the oven.
Carefully pour the boiled water into the pan, letting the water come only halfway to the top of the ramekin.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Run a knife between the ramekin and the custard to loosen it up from the walls.
Cool on a baking rack to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for about 4 hours before serving.

To serve: Run a knife around the inside of the wall of the ramekin.
Place a serving dish on top of the ramekin with the custard.
In a quick motion, turn the dish together with the ramekin, upside down.  
Lift the ramekin to display a delicious desert!

Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami
"If my art looks positive and cheerful, I would doubt my art was accepted in the contemporary art scene. My art is not Pop art. It is a record of the struggle of the discriminated people." - Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami (村上 隆 Murakami Takashi?, born in Tokyo) is an internationally prolific contemporary Japanese artist. He works in fine arts media—such as painting and sculpture—as well as what is conventionally considered commercial media —fashion, merchandise, and animation— and is known for blurring the line between high and low arts. He coined the term superflat, which describes both the aesthetic characteristics of the Japanese artistic tradition and the nature of post-war Japanese culture and society. Superflat is also used as a moniker to describe Murakami’s own artistic style and that of other Japanese artists he has influenced.

Murakami is the founder and President of Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd., through which he manages the careers of several younger artists and organizes the biannual art fair GEISAI.

Takashi Murakami and LV Make First Designer QR Code

This QR facelift, combining the designs of Louis Vuitton with Takashi Murakami, is something worth a look.

"This may be the first designer QR code ever."

Jean Snow says the stylized QR code works like the standard, barcode-like graphics, while Device adds that its the first time Takashi Murakami’s work has been interactive. Created by Japanese ad firm SET, the project is mostly just to promote other work the two companies have done together. But the creativity factor can’t be denied. It’s pretty neat.

Jason Lee : A Creative Photographer

Q: How did you get into photography?
A: I picked up my first digital camera a year before my first daughter was born, which was about 8 years ago. I really enjoyed taking photos and getting the immediate feedback from digital and it just grew from there.

Q: How do you come up with such creative photos of your daughters? What's your creative process like?
A: Most of the ideas come from the girls, from observing them play, or hearing the funny and outrageous things they say. Their day to day life also plays a big role for my inspiration. Creative process, hmm, thats a tough one. After coming up with an idea, I then 'set up' the scene, and often use artificial lighting to enhance the images. It helps to plan out the shoot before hand, so at most, I only have them in the shoot for a minute or two.

Q: How has being on Flickr helped you with your business?
A: I generally use Flickr to share photos of the kids, but I have had several inquiries for wedding work after people have seeing my child photography.

Q: Any inspirational stories you'd like to share?
A: Well, not sure if this is inspirational or not, but I'd like to share a little bit about why and how this project came about. In 2006, my mother was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. The girls were constantly sick, with colds and coughs so I couldn't always bring them to visit her. I started a blog as a way to keep my mom up to date with things that were going on in their lives, and hoping to cheer her up with pictures. I still try and keep it updated with photos, but it's at a far less frequency than when I first started.

Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers?
A: Don't be afraid to experiment. Take notes. When you have an idea, jot it down somewhere for later. Practice, practice, practice. Start a 365 project, or at least try to shoot something on a consistent basis.

Q: Any quotes you live by?
A: Like in Finding Nemo, Dori advises "just keep swimming, just keep swimming." Replace swimming with taking pictures and I think you have a winning formula : )
