2 Quickly toast off the fennel seeds in a smoking hot pan.

3 Add straight to the cream and milk.

4 Beat the egg yolk and sugar together.

5 Pour on the hot milk, cream and fennel seeds.

6 Whisk all together and add the honey to taste.

7 Infuse for 10 minutes then pass off.

8 Cook out slowly over a low heat until coating consistency is achieved.

9 Pour the mix in desired moulds and set in the refrigerator.

10 To serve sprinkle a little brown sugar on the top of the brulée and caramelise quickly with a blowtorch or under the grill.

11 Serve with freshly diced mango.
