GOURMANDISE & Co – Teurgoule normande Recipe

  • Difficulty - Easy
  • Preparation - 15 mins
  • Cooking time - 6 hours
  • Total time - 6hrs 15mins

Ingredients for 6 people

  • 2 l full cream milk
  • 250 g risotto rice
  • 150 g castor sugar
  • 3 cardamon pods (whole)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 clove
  • 3 star-anis (whole)
  • 2 tablespoons butter



  1. Start the preparation of your Teurgoule by placing rice in a large earthen-ware terrine.
  2. Add the sugar and all spices and mix with a spatula.
  3. Slowly add the milk so that the rice & spices stay at the bottom of your terrine.
  4. Add butter to mix (should float on surface).
  5. Place the terrine in oven pre-heated to 1500 C for 1 hour, then drop the temperature to 1100 C. Leave to bake for 5 hours.
  6. The mixture should be set (not liquid), with a golden crust. At Gourmandise & Co we serve our Teurgoule warm with seasonal poached fruit & maple syrup.

    * If desired you can also add a vanilla bean to give more flavour to your Teurgoule.
