When we were in Paris two years ago we ate in Le Soufflé which serves main course and dessert soufflés. I was certain the meal would be fabulous, and I was not disappointed! The best part of all was the chocolate dessert soufflé which in and of itself would have been divine, but before we devoured it, they poked a hole in the already extraordinary confection and poured in what has to be the best chocolate sauce I ever had. Since then I’ve asked myself hundreds of times, why in the sam hill we opted to share one instead of each having our own. Ok, back to my story at hand. When we came home, I was sure that would the last time I would be able to enjoy such a unique and “délicieux” dining experience. But to my surprise a few months ago I found out that a woman whose mother was French and who spent every summer of her childhood in France has begun 3 such restaurants, although with a bit of a southwestern flair in some of its offerings, in three major cities in Texas. Yes, it is on the pricey side, but ask me if I give a tinker’s damn!!! Anyway, after having lunch today in the one here where we live and enjoying among other things their savory and incredibly delicious French chocolate soufflé for dessert, we were handed two little cards with their website and phone number so we could make reservations for holiday dining. As we walked out, we opened them up and found culinary quotes on the inside. Mine was written by Ernest Hemingway, a writer whom I’ve always admired, and his words read, “wine is the most civilized thing in the world” which despite my love for his work, I took immediate exception to for I believe chocolate to be the most civilized thing in the world. And I know some who might say that the most civilized thing is coffee and others who might add something else. So, what say you?

I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. ~Psalm 63:5 ✝

  1. Wow, that looks like an incredibly wonderful dessert! The only thing that rates along with chocolate for me are the fruit called feijoas (Acca sellowiana, pineapple guava or guavasteen – these alternative names from Wikipedia).

    • I waited until today to answer tis comment because I wanted to find some posts I wrote about Paris and the way I feel about it. It all started in my senior year of high school when I first took French. The how and when of how I got to go to Paris eventually is a rather long tale which I shared in bits and pieces with my followers before we went for the second time in the summer of 2015. I know it’s a lot to ask but I would love for you to read my little saga because it explains how incredible and fabulous our 2 trips there have been. You don’t have to read them all at once but maybe you can find some time in the weeks to come to read the whole story because I would like you as much as or more than any of my other readers to know this story. So look near the top on the right hand side of my blog where you see a little red rectangular box that says “Follow.” Right beneath it is a little box that says search. Just put one of the numbers below each time you’re ready to read. They are in the right order: #752, 753, 754, 756, 759, 761, 763, 764, and 766. Once you’ve read the story, here are some very short reads and pics of the days we spent there the last time: #781, 782, 783, 784, 785, 786. I pray you are well. Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤ xoxoxoxoxoxo
