Anyone who occasionally checks out my Instagram account knows that I love entertaining at home, love to cook and love to set a pretty table. My dinners often include both my own culinary efforts as well as takeout and prepared food. So I hope that you can imagine my delight when I received an invitation to try out caterer/event planner Elizabeth Swift Copeland’s latest entry — The Fab Fête feezer-to-oven soufflés.

The initial launch by Swift, the founder of Swift + Company, includes Signature Cheese, White Corn & Truffle, and Brio Trio, the latter inspired by favorite charcuterie board accompaniments. And they are available for shipping for holiday gourmet feasts.

So yes, I’ve made a few dessert soufflés in my time but never seemed to fall in love with what I considered the nerve-wracking  process. However,  I have been inspired to meet the challenge. I recall a beautiful lunch in the River Oaks home of Lynn Wyatt, where her French chef prepared a divine lunch of green salad and cheese soufflé. It was perfection. The perfect ladies who lunch midday repast.

But when considering my choice of the White Corn & Truffle soufflé for dinner, I felt that a certain amount of protein was called for, particularly if guests are involved. For a hearty dinner, I decided on asparagus soup (this recipe is delicious) for a starter, the soup made all the richer by my homemade chicken stock, made from the remains of a Costco roasted chicken.

For the main course, I added beef tenderloin and roasted carrots (delish) and for dessert an assortment of cookies imported from Italy. I wanted one of the amazing raspberry tarts from the French Gourmet but I failed to call ahead so there were none on the table by the time of my belated Saturday dessert quest. More typically, I would make a pineapple upside down cake, blueberry kuchen, or Mexican chocolate cake, but I was busy.

On to the White Corn & Truffle Soufflé. Simple, simple, simple. Thaw the soufflé in the 32-ounce ramekin, which comes beautifully packaged that is perfect for gifting. Pop it in the oven for an hour and 20 minutes. And voila! It was perfectly delicious. My husband and our dinner guests were equally impressed. And, yes, we want to try the cheese soufflé next, though we doubt that anything could match the White Corn & Truffle delight.
