Souffles in Toronto

  • Souffles in Toronto please Mar 25, 2003 06:49 PM

I think I'm going through a retro phase. Does anybody in Toronto serve souffles any more?
I fondly recall the savoury souffles at Le Mascaron; my mouth still waters at the thought of the lobster souffle. I'll even settle for a dessert version.

  1. Just trying to fix up the heading in my post. Must have been half asleep.

      What's next, Estufarian? Clams Casino and Fondues?

      :-)

        Actually, now that you ask, lobster thermidor? Saves all the work extracting the meat - by which time the lobster is cold.

          My favourite way to eat lobster is still simply boiled. Although the meat cools, you can effectively warm it the drawn butter. Mmmmm!

          How about French Onion Soup?

            Still available at traditional steak houses. Always order it at Barberians!

                Try to avoid the souffles at Mortons, the lemon souffle doesn't have a strong enough lemon flavour, and I think that the chocolate souffle is made with a lindt or similar milk chocolate, and it doesn't have that richness that you might be looking for in a chocolate souffle.

      2. There is an excellent Souffle (desert) at Truffles Four Seasons, absolutely wonderful. The best Souffle (desert) i've ever had is at Commanders Palace in Las Vegas, but the one at Truffles is pretty darn good.

          I must be the unlucky one, had a souffle at Truffles but was disappointed. The best one I had is at l'atelier in Las Vegas. You can see the difference in the picture here.

           
           
        2. oh god, i love souffles! i am still morning the closure of the AGO resto, in large measure because of the delicious cheese souffle i had there...thankfully, i have a french friend/neighbour who makes amazing souffles so all i have to do is drop hints every so often and i get an invite:)

          haven't seen a savoury souffle on a menu in a while, but terroni on queen had a chocolate souffle for desert a few weeks ago. i didn't have it because we were so full so can't speak to it.

            I had a souffle for dessert last nite @ Langdon Hall in Cambridge.

            It was a Mocha Chocolate Souffle, served with Coffee Chocolate Sorbet and Caramel Chocolate Sauce.

            It was ... OUTSTANDING!!!!!
