Earlier this month, while watching DVDs of "The French Chef," I decided to tackle the souffle. I'd never had a souffle and had heard horror stories about difficult they are to make, that you have to keep your house silent while they're cooking so they
don't "fall," etc.
But watching Julia Child whip up a white sauce, enrich it with egg yolks, then fold beaten egg white into it made it look so easy. And it WAS easy! Easy and delicious. I used the basic cheese souffle recipe from "Mastering the Art of French Cooking."
The souffle was sort of like a mousse, but much firmer and just... divine. Absolutely divine.
Has anyone else out there made a souffle?
Golden-brown and delicious!
