The soufflé is one of the loveliest dishes to eat, and one of the trickiest to get right. (I once made a dessert that was called a soufflé but involved freezing and was essentially an ice cream in the end, and I've been baffled by what I made ever since.) If you're in or around London and have always wanted to learn how to create perfect soufflés, The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant in Knightsbridge is offering the Ultimate Soufflé Masterclass. You'll be in good hands. Head chef Ian Rudge says: “A soufflé is one of the most technically challenging dishes to master as it must remain moist in the centre, yet fluffy and full of texture. Guests will be taught how to create this lighter-than-air dish, which they can showcase at home for their next dinner party.”
The event will be held in The Rib Room’s kitchen, where attendees will enjoy a glass of champagne accompanied by appetising canapés, whilst learning the step by step techniques of creating this sophisticated dish.
An innovative mix of sweet and savoury soufflés will be created and they include:
- Apple crumble soufflé with bourbon vanilla ice cream and apple crisp
- Classic dark chocolate soufflé
- Pistachio soufflé with pistachio ice cream
- Double baked goat’s cheese soufflé
(Oh if only I were in London. I would feel mighty powerful being able to perfectly produce any of those dishes!)
The Ultimate Soufflé Masterclasses are priced at £35 per person and run for approximately 90 mins. For dates and to reserve a place visit the Rib Room's website.
