You’ll need:

12 ounces 60% chocolate

4 ounces (1/2 cup, or 1 stick) butter

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

4 egg yolks

6 egg whites

Pinch salt

4 ounces sugar

Method:

1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt together the chocolate and butter. Remove from the heat, then whisk in the cocoa powder and after that the egg yolks. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites and salt until foamy. Gradually add the sugar to the egg whites and whip to medium peaks.

3. Stir a third of the whites vigorously into the chocolate mixture until fully combined. Then fold in the remaining whites in two parts until all ingredients are incorporated.

4. Pour the mixture into a greased, parchment-lined 8-inch cake pan and bake until puffed and set, 18 to 20 minutes. (For individual cakes, use 4-inch greased brown paper molds. Fill each with 4.5 ounces batter; bake for 13 to 15 minutes.) Cool completely on a rack, then cover and refrigerate until chilled. Serve chilled, or bring to room temperature before serving.

Love Surfas, this weekend I had the fortune to attend one of their cooking demos hosted by food photographer & Master chef contestant; Becky Reams.  The demo was a three course meal wich consisted of; Smoked trout roulettes with brioche crackers, hot sauce mousse and shaved cucumber, no photo of this one, ate it before getting a photo of it :).  Second course knocked my socks off, it was ginger beer braised pork served over grits and a radish salad. My first encounter with grits and boar!! Tasting unknowns is so much fun lately, I truly enjoyed it. Untitled
The salad was topped with shiso leaves, have you had those? That was another first for me. For dessert, chef Becky made an inverted carrot cake with a cream cheese frosting, caramel mouse with coconut & pecan crumble……Untitled
My taste buds where spinning with joy.  Inspiring experience overall.  Now to try one of these recipes at home!

A few weeks back I found this on Vimeo, from Tasting Table editor, Scott Hocker. He went on assignment searching for the perfect Canelé in Bordeaux, France. After his extensive research overseas he found his choice for the perfect one here in the states at Boulettes Larder in San Francisco. AAAnd as luck would have it, Pauly had to travel up to San Francisco on assignment himself aaand brought home these beauties.
