For 4 people
  • Flour (60 gr)
  • Butter (60 gr)
  • Milk (13 fl oz)
  • 5 eggs
  • Grated cheese (150 gr)
  • Salt, pepper & nutmeg


  • 1. Melt the butter in a pot
  • 2. Add the flour and use a whip to mix it with the butter. You should get butter & flour dough.
  • 3. Over a heat source, add little by little the milk and whip (alternate milk and whip) until you get something creamy. Watch out, if you add too much milk at the same time, it will give you something super liquid, so you'll have to heat & whip it a long time until it become creamy.
  • 4. Add the grated cheese
  • 5. Out of the heat source, add the egg yolks (one by one)
  • 6. In another bowl, whisk the egg white until they form peaks and add it delicately to the cooled cheese preparation
  • 7. Salt, pepper & nutmeg as you like
  • 8. Choose a mold with straight sides (about 3 inches high) and butter it (IMPORTANT step to make sure that the soufflé perfectly swell).
  • 9. Pour the mixture into the mold (stop about 1 inch from the mold edge) and bake into the preheated oven (350°) for 35 minutes.
  • 10. Take a picture for instagram, tag @hasta_paris and eat!
