Cauliflower Souffle – Kids Cook French

Recipe From: Kids Cook French – Les Enfants Cuisinent A La Francaise By: Claudine Pepin Illustrated by: Jacques Pepin

Cauliflower Souffle


From Claudine: The story of this soufflé dates to when my grandmother married my grandfather. She was about eighteen, she didn’t know how to cook very much, but knew he liked soufflé. So she made hers this way, without separating the eggs, and it worked! It does not rise as much as a traditional soufflé, but it is delicious and so much easier! She never added cauliflower; that is just me. Serves 8 Ingredients: 7 tablespoons (100 g) unsalted butter 1 cup (240 g) cauliflower puree (see instructions) 1⁄3 cup (41 g) all-purpose flour 2 cups (475 ml) whole milk 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1 pinch freshly ground white pepper 6 eggs 6 ounces (170 g) Gruyére or Swiss cheese, grated (about 2 cups) 2 tablespoons (6 g) minced chives Preparation: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).… Read More

Kids Cook French Cover (hi-res)

According to world-renown chef, Jacques Pepin, “the moment for a child to be in the kitchen is from the moment they are born”

Jacques daughter Claudine Pepin has created a fun interactive cookbook for both parents and kids, introducing them to the arts and joy of cooking. With an emphasis on fresh ingredients and hands-on preparation, dishes include traditional starters, main courses, and deserts.

You will find from the very start of this book, that the left side page is in English and the right side is in French. I like this, as it’s also a way to have fun recognizing the French words for the classic recipes found in restaurants around the world.… Read More
