The Art of the Soufflé: Finding the Best of a French Classic in Paris

HiP Paris Blog rounds up the best souffle in ParisCarly Jayne

Editor’s note: By the time we get to February springtime feels so close yet so far away! These grey days of winter seem longer than ever and we all need a remedy for another rainy day. Enter the Soufflé. This French classic is the culinary equivalent of a ray of sunshine- bright golden and warming all over.
