toulouse soufflé

going through my pictures this morning i came across this delicious beauty! when my mom came in town a few weeks ago, we ate at the lovely french restaurant, toulouse, and of course had to try the soufflé! we ordered the grand marnier soufflé first and then realized there is no chocolate with that one (for shame!) so we ordered the chocolate one as well...just for the three of us...they were both divine. in fact, we found that taking a bite of both at the same time was really the best way to enjoy them! if you are ever in the area, i highly suggest toulouse, a true neighborhood favorite. 

i have always wanted to try to make a soufflé but alas, i am intimidated by horror stories of just how much they can be messed up. 

do you like soufflés? can you make one?? i am dying to know someone who has been successful...

That souffle looks amazing! You should definitely try to make your own- it's not nearly as hard as it seems, I promise! Mark Bittman did a little video on making savory souffles in the New York Times a couple of months ago. The ideas are the same for sweet and savory- you should definitely check it out, he's got some good tips!

I love souffles! My husband made a cheese one this weekend and it was delicious. If you follow the Joy of Cooking recipe you should be abel to do it. We tried to make them on V-day in the chocolate form but ours didn't turn out so well. We just didn't care enough though and they still tasted yummy!
