Soufflé day: The results!

Well as everyone knows :) January 11th is soufflé day, so we went for the big one: soufflé for main course, soufflé for afters.

Here are the two recipes we used, the recipes were both brilliant and worked OK:

I've got photos too! Yes!

Making the soufflés Making the soufflés was OK. The timing was a bit tricky (put the main course in the oven, then get started quick-sharp on the dessert) but apart from that it all went smoothly.

We knew a few tips about soufflés: fold the whites in with a plastic or wood spoon (not metal, that deflates them). Don't over-fold when putting the whites in, you don't need to get the mixture looking 100% mixed in. ... and it worked, tadaaa:

Courgette soufflé

It was a dead nice soufflé. Seriously, next soufflé day, try this one out, it really does taste creamy and nice.

And for afters we had a lovely rich chocolate and orange soufflé, basically tastes like a very very light chocolate orange cake. Lovely.

It's great to hear that Sam (I assume, tho Lucy may have been the guilty party on second thought...)spread the word on Souffle Day, and there was such a tremendous response.
Keep up the good work,
