Love Souffles / Gruyer Cheese Souffle & Chocolate Souffle

 This week love is in the air, so I bring you two recipes to fall in love, ideal for a romantic candlelight dinner, the first one is a Gruyere Cheese Souffle, this scrumptious (literally) soft , light, fluffy, full of flavour and perfect with an arugula salad and a glass of white wine, the other is also a souffle recipe but this time to a sweet version .... a Chocolate Souffle, accompanied by fresh raspberries and if you're a glutton or greedy like me, go with it, with a vanilla ice cream quenelle, which makes it more sinful and irresistible.

 Yes, I'm already seeing your little face "But Souffles are very complicated to do" no, no, no Mr or Ms, it's not hard at all, today you will learn that nothing is difficult in the kitchen, it just requires patience, in the videos I explain step by step how to make your souffles stay perfect and you can impress with your cooking skills that special person, with whom you will spend the St. Valentin's day, either your partner, your children, your parents or yourself (of course yes ... you can impress yourself cooking something delicious just for you).

     Moving on to the dessert, my absolute weakness... chocolate, can you tell me, what would Valentine's Day be without chocolate into the equation?... nooooo. I'm not very romantic, younger I was very cheesy, I can't deny it, but not now, as I like to do something special, simple without much fanfare, so I think this chocolate souffle is perfect because you can sit and share it with your partner and if you placed the ice cream, ahhhhh, the ice cream is a sin haha, well if you can share it, because it is very rich and I can't guarantee anything, I particularly don't share anything with chocolate, but the recipe makes 4 servings so there will enough to share.
