smoothing secrets
prevent lumps by stirring flour into melted butter
with a wire whisk, gradually add the half and half
white stirring constantly. cook four mixture over
medium heat; high heat can cause it to curdle
_____________________ eggsclusive secrets
carefully separate cold eggs
stirring a small amount of hot mixture into beaten egg
yolks warms them. This step called tempering
prevents the egg yolks from lumping (coagulating)
puffing secrets
even the smallest amount of fat, including that in a
ddrop of yolk, keeps the egg white from beating
properly. Because wooden and plastic bowls tend to
absorb fat avoid using them when beating egg whites
stiff but not dry mean egg whites no longer slip when
the bowl is titled. To fold in a beated egg white, use
a down-across-up-and-over motion with a rubber spatual
to cut through the carrot mixture. Fold just until
there aren't any remaining streaks. don't stir it
forces out the air in the beaten white.
dish size is important; if the container is too small,
the mixture may run over, if the container is too
large the mixture won't rise to the rim and have it
tradition appearance. Use a straight-sided casserole
if you don't have a traditional souffle dish.
Place souffle into a preheated oven immediately after
mixing. Don't peek, opening the oven door will cause
a souffle to collapse. the top will be slightly firm
to the touch.
