"This is a lighthearted version of riz a l'imperatrice "rice in the
style of the empress" - which is thought to have been inspired by Empress
Eugenie, the Spanish wife of Napolean."

Bring 2 tablepsoons dried currants and brandy to boil in small saucepan.
Remove mixture from heat. Combine 1-1/2 cups water, rice and salt in
another small saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce
heat to low. Cook uncovered until almost all water is absorbed and rice
is very soft, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.

Place 2 cups milk in heavy medium saucepan; sprinkle gelatin over milk.
Let stand 10 minutes to soften.

Heat milk mixture over low heat until just warm, stirring until gelatin
dissolves. Add currant mixture, rice, sugar, orange peel and cinnamon.
Cook over low heat until mixture thickens slightly, stirring occasionally,
about 12 minutes; do not boil. Whisk egg and vanilla in medium bowl to
blend. Mix 1/2 cup of hot rice mixture into egg. Return egg mixture to
saucepan and stir over very low heat 3 minutes; do not boil. Remove
mixture from heat.

Place saucepan in bowl of ice water. Stir pudding occasionally until
cool. Spoon into four 3/4-cup custard cups. Refrigerate until set, at
least 8 hours.
