When the weather is this lovely, I normally live off salads, vegetables and dips and things like that; but since coming back from the States, I’ve been craving home-cooked foods. There’s something so nice about being back in my new apartment and taking the time to cook for myself.
I haven’t made a souffle in years. I must have been 18 the last time I made one… it was a Grand Marnier souffle when I was working in the pastry kitchen of a five star hotel in St. Tropez. I remember the smell so well and I also remember the chef telling me that it was a good dessert for the warmer months of the year because although it’s served warm, it’s so light and fluffy and doesn’t fill you up too much on a hot day. That got me thinking, why haven’t I made a savoury souffle?
