Object 52 [of 66] – Souffle dish


"The souffle is the egg at its most magnificent. How glorious it is when borne to the table, its head rising dramatically out of its dish, and swaying voluptuously as it is set down. Invite special guests to lunch and you couldn't serve them a more appropriate and attractive light meal than cheese souffle and a green salad, or plan on a chocolate souffle as a loving treat for your most favorite dinner guests." (Julia's Kitchen Wisdom, p. 71.) Feeling as she did about souffle's, it's not surprising that Julia owned many souffle dishes. This is one of five she stored on a shelf in the cabinet next to the range.
