The soufflé has long been a favourite pudding since it first came about in France in the eighteenth century — light and airy, it’s the perfect ending to a heavy meal. And now, a tasty new soufflé has hit the menu of London restaurant 45 Jermyn St. in the form of summer raspberries and pistachio. To celebrate, Head Chef, Sam White has shared his recipe with us so we can recreate this classic French dessert at home.
