Julia Robert's Creme Brulée vs. Jell-O

Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts), a 27-year-old New York restaurant critic, receives a call from her longtime friend telling her he's engaged. She realizes she loves him herself and sets out to get him, with only 4 days before the wedding. 

Julia Robert's great culinary relationship analogy:
"Crème brûlée can never be Jell-O. YOU could never be Jell-O"

Categorize woman into desserts: Crême Brulée vs. Jell-O
Crème Brûlée is a delicate French dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a contrasting layer of caramelized sugar. It is normally served cold. The custard base is traditionally flavored with vanilla, but is also sometimes flavored with lemon or orange. Crème brûlée is one of the most popular desserts, and according to many 'one of the greatest desserts in the realm of cooking'.

Jell-O is a US brand name for a number of gelatin desserts, including fruit gels, puddings and no-bake cream pies. The brand's popularity has led to it being used as a generic term for gelatin dessert across the U.S. and Canada. Jell-O is sold prepared (ready to eat) or in powder form, and is available in many different colors and flavors. 

No gourmet cook would make Crème Brûlée with Jell-O Pudding - but Former journalist and cookbook author Nicole Parton does!
