Broccoli & Aged Gouda
"Cheese Souffle"


We have a dairy not far away called the Winchester Cheese Co. I have posted about this farm and cheese purveyor before and expressed my favorable opinion of this cheese. I was reminded recently why I enjoyed their dairy products so much, while on a visit to the Temecula Farmers Market I happened to pick up some of their Super Aged Gouda. This is considered their ultimate superior cheese that is aged over one year. It has a very sharp taste, rich orange yellow color and makes an excellent and flavorful accent for recipes like this cheese souffle.

I used a recipe for a Cheese Souffle that I found in Aliza Green's cookbook called, “Starting With Ingredients”. Aliza has been recognized as a James Beard Award winning author for this book. This award winning cheese along with an award winning author's recipe made for an amazing souffle display!


I would normally include a recipe with a photo description but this recipe is from a published author and not my own nor an adaptation. From what recipes I have read it seems that souffle ingredients are very similar as far as egg, flour and liquid ratios are concerned with the difference occurring in cheeses, vegetables and seasonings. I think if you happen to have a good cookbook with a souffle recipe chances are you can enhance it with what you have on hand. That's usually what I do with a quiche or fritatta too. :)

I'm also exited to share that I will be a part of a food community called Foodierama.

The souffle looks amazing and this gouda sounds terrific, we would love to taste it sometime if we can get it. My daughter's favorite cheese is aged gouda. She was eating the goat milk's gouda while we were having brie :)
