Love potion



For all of you who celebrate Valentine's day, here is a recipe that will surely make your other half melt: 
A homemade chocolate soufflé served with a raspberry cream
I always thought this was going to be a difficult recipe but it turns out to be easy if you follow the exact instructions and measurements. I used Gordon Ramsay's recipe which you can find here or on youtube here

We don't celebrate Valentine's day as we prefer to surprise each other with romantic gestures when we least expect it, but to all of you who celebrate it: Happy Valentine's day! 

Tips:
*Before placing the soufflé in the oven, make sure that the border of your ramequin is clean so that the  soufflé can rise properly.
*Serve with a spoon of homemade raspberry cream  

Raspberry Cream recipe (from Gordon Ramsay's Desserts cookbook) 
200g raspberries  
squeeze of lemon juice
1-2 tablespoons of icing sugar
300ml double cream - chilled

1- Purée the raspberries in a blender, add the lemon juice and sweeten with icing sugar (to taste)
2- Pass the puree through a sieve into a bowl, cover and chill
3- Just before serving, whip the cream until if forms soft, floppy peaks, then fold in the raspberry purée

Enjoy!
