Celebrate Crème Brûlée Day at Skylon Tower
This year, Crème Brûlée Day lands on Saturday, July 27th, and the Skylon Tower invites you to celebrate this special occasion at the world renown Revolving Dining Room. For those of you who have savoured crème brûlée before, you will understand why this delectable dessert deserves its own day. For those of you who have yet to have the pleasure, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy this French favourite from 775 feet above the Falls.
So what is so special about crème brûlée? For starters, it is a sweet, creamy, rich vanilla custard base topped with a contrasting layer of caramelized sugar. The caramelized sugar layer is created with torch fire, fresh to order. The custard is chilled before it is torched, warming the top but leaving the centre cool. The sugar on top hardens and creates a glass-like brittle layer that you have to crack open with your spoon, revealing the creamy custard underneath. These two distinct elements and temperatures create a flavourful and complex sensation for your palette, giving you a crisp, creamy taste of heaven.
You may know this dish as Crema Catalana or Trinity Burnt Creme. Whatever you call it, it is an undeniably delicious dessert that you can enjoy on its own or after your meal at the Revolving Dining Room. With a scrumptious panoramic view of the Falls, there is no better place to celebrate crème brûlée! Now that you know what you’ll be ordering for dessert, you just have to choose your appetizer and main for a lovely three-course lunch or dinner. Of course you’ll want to reserve your table, as the dining room is a popular choice on any given day let alone a special occasion like this.
Given the richness of crème brûlée, you may want to choose something light and refreshing to start, such as the Canadian Smoked Salmon, Tiger Shrimp Cocktail, or Salad « Framboise ». Follow that with Roasted Chicken Breast, Grilled Fresh Atlantic Salmon, or Sautéed Zucchini Spirals, preferably with an accompanying glass (or bottle!) of wine, and experience decadence like never before, while still saving room for your freshly caramelized dish of crème brûlée.
In addition to crème brûlée, the Skylon Tower Revolving Dining Room offers an array of desserts from their Patisserie, such as Freshly Baked Praline, Chocolate Velvet, and Vanilla Cheesecakes, their Signature Skylon Pecan Pie, Chocolate Amaretto Torte, and the classic Apple Pie « A la Mode ». For your after dinner delight, choose from a selection of Freshly Brewed Colombian Coffees, Cappuccino, and Espresso, as well as Orange Pekoe, Earl Grey, Chamomile, and Green Teas.
So what are you waiting for? Crème Brûlée Day comes but once a year, so make the most of it with a trip to beautiful Niagara Falls and a ride up to the top of Skylon Tower. If you missed out this year, crème brûlée can turn any day into a special occasion, especially when it’s enjoyed with the people you love at 775 feet above Niagara Falls.
