You'll need

60 gm butter 60 gm plain flour 350 ml hot milk 80 gm Gruyère, coarsely grated 20 gm parmesan, coarsely grated 4 eggs, separated 1 egg yolk For dusting: white polenta   Gruyère cream 200 ml pouring cream 30 gm Gruyère, coarsely grated 30 gm parmesan, coarsely grated 2 egg yolks   Baby vegetables 200 gm baby leeks (about 1 bunch), trimmed 400 gm Dutch carrots (about 1 bunch), trimmed, scrubbed 250 gm baby turnips (about 1 bunch), trimmed 40 gm butter, coarsely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add flour and stir occasionally until sand-coloured (1-2 minutes). Add milk gradually, stirring until smooth, then whisk in cheeses, season to taste and set aside to cool slightly (10-12 minutes). Add yolks one at a time, beating after each addition. Whisk eggwhite to soft peaks in a separate bowl and fold into yolk mixture. Divide among six buttered and polenta-dusted 200ml ramekins. Place ramekins in a deep roasting pan, pour in enough hot water to come halfway up sides of ramekins and bake until golden and puffed (25-30 minutes). Cool slightly (5 minutes) then turn out onto six ovenproof dishes.
  • 02
  • Increase oven to 200C. For Gruyère cream, stir ingredients in a bowl to combine. Spoon over soufflés and bake until golden and puffed (8-10 minutes).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for baby vegetables, blanch vegetables in a saucepan of boiling salted water over medium-high heat until just tender (1-2 minutes for leeks; 2-3 minutes for carrots and turnips) drain and set aside. Heat butter in a frying pan over high heat, add baby vegetables and stir occasionally until golden (2-3 minutes). Season to taste and serve hot with twice-baked Gruyère soufflés.

"Patrice Repellin cooks the most wonderful French food at Koots Salle à Manger, and his twice-baked soufflé is my favourite. May I have the recipe?"
