From: Fredy Girardet: By 'Soup', we mean what many people would call a compote.

Serves 4.


Cherry Soup:

  • 2-1/4 lb Black Cherries - stoned (about 14 oz.)
  • 1 oz. unsalted butter
  • 2 oz. sugar
  • Kirsch


  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2-1/2 oz. sugar
  • 1-1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • One day in advance, put 400 g (14 oz) stoned cherries into a frying pan with the butter.
  • Cook them gently until the juice runs.
  • Add the sugar and continue cooking until the sugar slightly caramelises. At this point, pour in a generous dash of kirsch and flambé it.
  • Take the pan off the stove.
  • Put the cherries into a strainer to drain them, and keep the juice.

  • Just before serving, pre-heat the oven to 500°F (260°C).

  • Divide the cherries between four little soufflé dishes 6 cm (2-3/8 inches) in diameter and just cover them with their juice.
  • Prepare the soufflé mixture.
  • Put the egg yolk into a basin with 35 g (1-1/4 oz) sugar. Beat it until it becomes pale and fluffy.
  • Add half a tablespoon of lemon juice.

  • In another basin, whisk the egg whites to firm peaks with the rest of the sugar, then fold in a tablespoonof lemon juice.
  • Fold the whites delicately into the yolk mixture using a spatula.

  • Top up the moulds with the soufflé mixture.
  • Bake the Soufflé at the bottom of the pre-heated oven for 5 minutes.
