I was recently asked to contribute to my favourite local boutique, Stanwells Sunday Post newsletter and when I saw the end result, I had to share it here. Not just because it has me wrapped up against the cold in a gorgeous Parajumpers coat…although I have to say wearing that for the photos was wonderful.
The main pull for me was the cheese. Or to be precise, the recipe from one of my favourite local restaurants, The Jetty – Alex’s Twice Baked Cheese Soufflé With Dorset Cheddar Crust. Yes I know. Wipe that drool off your keyboard quick.
Mr Online Stylist took me to The Jetty for my birthday lunch back in May and I had this soufflé as a starter…and promptly fell head over heels in heavenly, cheesy love with it. So when I saw that Stanwells had posted chef Alex Aitken’s recipe I had to share it here.
I’ve never attempted a soufflé before – the very thought terrifies me. But for this much cheese in a ramekin I could be persuaded. And talking of cheese…the grin below contains far more than my daily allowance.
