Jehane Benoit demonstrates making a strawberry flan

The Story

Madame Jehane Benoit, a welcome regular guest on the CBC Television show Take 30, gives the audience a lesson in how to make a strawberry flan.  Her tips and tricks include which pan makes it easiest for a novice baker, and even how to make a flan ring if a purchased one is not available.  While making the flan dough, she uses her hands, avoiding the mixer so that the audience can hear her, but also because it can do a better job --"there is a warmth in your hands".
