The background of National Chocolate Souffle Day

Vincent La Chapelle perfects a soufflé recipe by combining sweet and savoury ingredients such as candied lemon and veal kidney. Antoine Beauvilliers details how to make a soufflé in his book “L’Art du Cuisinier.”Antonin Carême is credited with developing numerous soufflé recipes and popularising the dish.Sabrina’s (portrayed by Audrey Hepburn) attempts to make soufflé at a Parisian culinary school are criticised by the school’s master chef.

French is synonymous with elegance, so merely uttering “chocolate soufflé” makes us feel sophisticated and continental. Chocolate soufflé is more delicate than chocolate cake, more refined than chocolate pudding, and more intriguing than chocolate ice cream. It makes us feel cosmopolitan when we order it, and gourmet when we prepare it. The chocolate soufflé is an incredibly elegant dessert that is incredibly simple to prepare. Many consider the dish to be difficult; we’ve all heard of the dreaded deflated soufflé! But here’s a secret: even when imperfect, they are delicious! Simple ingredients and minimal effort in the kitchen are required to prepare chocolate soufflés that yield magnificent results. If you like chocolate, you’ll love a chocolate soufflé. Even picky or unadventurous eaters can’t get enough of this delicious dessert. Skeptical? You’ve probably had one without realising it. Chocolate lava cake, which can be found on most dessert menus and in frozen food aisles, is a variation on the classic chocolate soufflé!
