It baked. It rose. It fell. Pretty much sums up this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Muenster Cheese Soufflés, p 152).
I’m not so good at making soufflés. Well actually I am not so good at getting the photo of a soufflé. I’ve never managed to get a photo of one still risen – not for these Dorie Greenspan classic cheese soufflés nor these “Twice Baked” goat cheese soufflés for the Daring Cooks. But the “twice baked” ones taught me that even a fallen soufflé can taste great.
So even though they started to fall before my eyes 2 seconds after I opened the oven door and by the time the reached the table a couple of feet away, they looked like this:
they still tasted great. Even the next day, reheated on a bed of arugula lightly dressed with vinaigrette. Not quite the dramatic beauty one expects with a soufflé but I guess you have to be there. At the very moment they are ready to eat!
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs (though this week, you can find the recipe online here), we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself then join us here!
