I was watching (shocker) the foodnetwork last week and happened to see a small bit of “Glutton for Punishment” and there was a guy who was making a totally chocolate, centred dinner. Of course my ears perked-up. The chef was from Montreal and had really neat spins on food. I don’t think he ever thought of anything other than food and he came up with possibly the most brilliant idea EVER.
Chocolate souffles that were ready in 8 seconds. Surely not! Surely, this was a James Cameron
So I melted 100 grams of dark chocolate in a double boiler.
Beat eat five eggs whites until stiff.
Folded the two together.
Place them in pretty espresso cups.
Cook individually in the microwave for 20 seconds (I don’t have a commercial microwave so I upped the time in increments of 4 seconds until it was puffy but firm).
Turn out onto a plate or even better have your guests do it for an exciting “Wow!” at the table.
