Lemon Souffle

Lemon soufflé  (recipe from Michelin star Chef Christian Plumail)

Ingrediences  for 4 persons

1./ 4 organic lemons preferably from Nice, Menton area, known for the quality of its lemons 

2./ (80 gr lemon juice)

3./ 160 gr. sugar

4./ 4 eggs

5./ 6 gr salt

6./ Ice sugar

7./ Butter and cast sugar to coat the forms

Recipe: preheat oven at 180 degrees C.

1./ Put individual forms at least 1 hour in the fridge, than butter and sugar them carefully. This is delicate as it will definitely help your souffle to come up straight and even.

2./ zest the lemons than make juice

3./ separate egg yolks from egg white

4./ mix egg yolks with sugar up to white and ad lemon zest.

5./ right prior putting in the oven beat the egg whites- ones, ad a pinch of salt to make them harder. Ones hard ad carefully the lemon juice  

6./ Mix slowly and delicately the egg yolks with the whites in smooth circular movements. And put in the forms. Swipe off till flat.

7./ sprinkle with ice sugar and flame until nice light brown.

 8./ put in oven for 7 to 8 minutes. (Very important to know the heat of your oven and never open the oven prior ready).

You can serve as is or do like me at B&B La Parare serve together with a nice lemon sorbet and the home made limoncello from Karin. (See picture).


Enjoy and bon appétit

Out at sea


Our guests gives us lots of good ideas and one of the better ones has been to get an inflatable canoe. In the middle of the summer when the beaches are pretty full – off we go in PS Paloma! (PS short for paddle ship). We still need to work a bit on the paddling technique as for the moment we tend to be going mainly zig-zag not yet having mastered the straight line. It goes in to a back-pack (with a bit of effort) and we just park down by the coast and 10 minutes later – out at sea!
