Chocolate Lava Soufflé with Vanilla Ice Cream

Credit: Laurent Fau

“A new take on a classic, designed for a truly gourmet experience: nice and crisp on the outside with a runny, warm center. In this way, the soufflé is great from the first to the very last mouthful. I serve it with a Madagascar vanilla ice cream—my favorite—giving it a little roundness and balancing the intensity of the chocolate.”
