My fiancee recorded the last serie of masterchef starring michel roux jr.In the last episode the chef made his father classic cheese souffle and aisling asked me to recreate the recipe . First i struggled finding comte cheese but once bought , i had to cook the souffle , it was lovely and rich but next time one souffle with some salad will be our whole meal as the dish itself is really filling. The souffle nicely rised but once out of the oven , they started to collapse so sorry in advance for the pictures.
