I just finished class, and tonight was SOUFFLES!! No pictures from tonight, it was a hectic one and souffles flatten quickly. A goat cheese and herb souffle and a chocolate-peppermint souffle. Can’t wait to make the latter for Christmas Dinner! I’m also glad to learn more about souffles so I can perfect the Commander’s Palace Bread Pudding Souffle with Whiskey Sauce…(I know it rocks now, Angelique, but wait until I get my new techniques behind it!!! You get first taste!)
The fun challenge of the evening…make creme anglaise in 15 minutes…I didn’t quite make it, but that was also because I hadn’t finished my chocolate souffle yet…but it’s all good!
I do have a new item for “Try This At Home”:
Looks good, huh? I REALLY enjoy making eclaires and cream puffs and swans (oh my!)… I know I annoyed Mike because for the past three days I wouldn’t stop saying “pate a choux” (pronounced pot-a-shoo). It just sounds so cool and French to say…
On a totally separate note, I had a musing I would like to share with you:
While eating my Bertoli four-cheese mini-ravioli with marinara sauce, I’m nostalgically taken back to my days living in New York. Mom would always send me Spaghetti-O’s because it was my favorite! With my refined, “urban” palate is it scary that Bertoli is the “urban” Chef Boyardee??
Wednesday night – MERINGUES!
Until next time, Happy Dreams and Sweet Thoughts!
