BAKED CUSTARD A custard that is prepared in a water bath in the oven. The final product will be rich and firm enough to unmold and slice. Some examples of baked custard are crème caramel, quiche, crème brûlée, and bread pudding
CRÈME ANGLAISE Stirred custard made with egg yolks, sugar and milk or half-and-half. Usually flavored with vanilla, cooked on the stovetop, continuously stirred, never allowed to boil. Serves many purposes including a base for ice cream, bavarians, and dessert sauces.

CURD FILLINGS Stirred custard made with eggs, sugar, butter and fruit juice, usually citrus. Used as a filling for tarts, cakes, and tortes

CRÈME CARAMEL Also known as flan (Mexico and Spain), and crème renversée. These are custards baked over a layer of caramelized sugar and inverted for service.
CRÈME BRÛLÉE Can be made either on the stovetop or oven. Basically a thick version of crème anglaise. Final product, unlike crème caramel, is not inverted for service. The top of the custard is layered with granulated sugar and burned with a torch/placed under a broil
