Kitchen Stories. Potato and Cheese Soufflé.

by Cashmere Wrap & Macadamia Nuts

Potato and Cheese Soufflé is not a main course, but certainly a great addition to more elaborate courses such as boeuf bourguignon or a meat and vegetable stew. As always with soufflé, there is a risk it won’t raise, but if you are patent enough and keep the owen doors closed no matter what (black smoke fuming from inside is an eligible excuse to open the owen though…), you should do just fine – at least I always did!
