Crème AnglaiseWhisk sugar and egg yolks in mixing bowl until pale yellow and ribbony. Add milk, cream and vanilla bean to the saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to boil.

Bring mixture to 180°F, stirring constantly with a high heatproof rubber spatula. Do not boil. Strain through a fine sieve into stainless steel bowl set over an ice bath, to stop cooking process. Whisk to cool quickly. Return vanilla bean to crème Anglaise. Stir in Mandarine Napoleon. Refrigerate. Transfer to sauce dish.

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

6 large egg yolks

6 large egg whites

1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

pinch sea salt

1/4 cup granulated sugar

4 ounces dark chocolate, 72% cocoa, cut into 8 pieces

Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly butter eight 6-ounce soufflé dishes. Coat each dish thoroughly with 1 teaspoon sugar. Place on a baking sheet. Set aside. Add chocolate and butter to a large mixing bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water, ensuring the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Stir until melted. Remove from heat. Whisk in egg yolks, one at a time. In a separate mixing bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and pinch of salt to soft peaks. Add sugar. Beat to stiff peaks. Whisk a quarter of egg whites into the chocolate. Gently fold in remaining egg whites, using a rubber spatula. Spoon mixture into prepared soufflé dishes. Insert one piece of chocolate into the center of mixture. Bake in center of oven 12 minutes or until nicely puffed.


2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Dust top of soufflé with powdered sugar before serving. At the table, tell your guests to puncture the center of soufflé with a dessert spoon and pour in crème Anglaise.

Bon Appetit!
