NATIONAL CHEESE SOUFFLE DAY – May 18th 2016


National Cheese Souffle Day May 18

NATIONAL CHEESE SOUFFLE DAY

On National Cheese Souffle Day, observed May 18, we can all enjoy a little of this French delight.  The word souffle is the past participle of the French verb, souffler, which means “to blow up” or “puff up.”  Combine egg whites with custard and it will puff up into a fine, golden souffle when baked.

Egg yolks and beaten egg whites, mixed with various other ingredients make up a souffle.  It can be served as a tasty main course dish, or it can be sweetened for a dessert.

Each souffle is made up of either a French creme base, a flavored creme sauce or puree and beaten egg whites

 

The base provides the flavor and the egg whites provide the “lift”.  The base is commonly made up of cheese, jam, fruits, berries, chocolate, and lemon.  This day is dedicated to the cheese based souffle.

HOW TO OBSERVE
