Freebase

  1. Soufflé

    A soufflé is a lightly baked cake made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites combined with various other ingredients and served as a savory main dish or sweetened as a dessert. The word soufflé is the past participle of the French verb souffler which means "to blow up" or more loosely "puff up"—an apt description of what happens to this combination of custard and egg whites. Every soufflé is made from two basic components: ⁕a French crème pâtissière base/flavored cream sauce or purée ⁕egg whites beaten to a soft peak meringue The base provides the flavor and the whites provide the "lift". Foods commonly used for the base in a soufflé include cheese, jam, fruits, berries, chocolate, banana and lemon. When it comes out of the oven, a soufflé should be puffed up and fluffy, and it will generally fall after 5 or 10 minutes. Soufflés can be made in containers of all shapes and sizes but it is traditional to make soufflé in ramekins. These containers vary greatly in size, but are typically glazed white, flat-bottomed, round porcelain containers with unglazed bottoms and fluted exterior borders.

    Fait intéressant, il est l'imperfection qui fait de belles choses, même si ce point de vue peut sembler labyrinthique. La perfection absolue est souvent inaccessible en réalité, et pourtant tant de choses imparfaites peut être à couper le souffle. il doit donc être nos imperfections qui nous rendent si unique - et donc plus belle à mon humble avis. I aime ce que Marilyn Monroe a dit il ya des décennies: "Imperfection est la beauté, la folie est le génie, et il vaut mieux être absolument ridicule absolument ennuyeux." Donc, aller de l'avant et de célébrer votre differentness - y compris vos imperfections qui vous rendent belle.
