recipe

Souffles have a reputation for being temperamental, but they're actually very simple. They get their signature height from stiffly beaten egg whites. Using a few staple ingredients, you can whip up a dessert that's guaranteed to impress at a dinner party yet easy enough for a casual supper.

recipe

You can make the souffles a day ahead and refrigerate them, covered, in the ramekins. To reheat, unmold the souffles and place them right side up on a rimmed baking sheet. Pour one-quarter cup heavy cream over top, and heat in a 375-degree oven until heated through and cream is bubbling, about 12 minutes. Prepare the vegetables while the souffles are in the oven.

recipe

When beating egg whites, Chef Madeleine Kamman prefers to use a copper bowl and a large balloon whisk. Her trick for successfully blending the whites into the batter is to first mix in a quarter of the whites, then quickly rewhip the remainder with a pinch of sugar, reincorporating any water that has separated from the beaten whites, before folding them into the mixture.
