Matcha Green Tea Pot de Creme Recipe Recipe

We gave another dinner party last night. Daddy (my father-in-law) had new friends over; they're a delightful couple who recently moved from Boston to the Bay Area. We had a lovely, fairly light meal consisting of lots of seafood, such as crab cakes with muhammara (pomegranate sauce) accompanied by seafood Israeli couscous salad, then roasted Chilean seabass with homemade preserved citrus hollandaise sauce. I wanted to keep the same delicate mood for dessert, so I prepared lightly sweetened matcha green tea pot de creme. I believe that food should be a visual experience, so I decorated the sweet treats with whipped cream and fresh raspberries. 

I was so excited to have been given a tin of matcha green tea powder in my Christmas stocking stuffer and couldn't wait to make use of the unique, distinctive flavor of this tea.
