Chocolate Soufflé

« There are some very different versions of chocolate soufflé. Today’s recipe is from Pascal Trouvé, head pastry chef at the “Relais Bernard Loiseau” in Saulieu. It’s a very light and airy version, with a texture somewhere between “moussy” and firm, with the pleasing appearance of a typical soufflé. »
