THE RECIPE

Thomas Keller’s Chocolate Souffle

Love is but a chocolate soufflé

The word soufflé comes from the French verb souffler which means “to blow up” or more loosely “puff up,” which is exactly what happens in this sweet (but sometimes savory) classic French dish. Notoriously difficult to master, soufflés are often presented in movies and sitcoms in a comical light as characters inevitably fail at their baking attempts. But the fact is anyone can (and should) make a decent soufflé by just taking care to hit a few key steps. Have your eggs at room temperature, make sure the chocolate base is cooled before adding your egg whites, don’t over whip your eggs. To accompany the recipe for her stunning and mouth-watering chocolate soufflé, Jennifer breaks down the how-to with simple tips to help you achieve success.
