  1. Potato Souffle

    • Fill a pot with water enough to submerge the potatoes and bring it to a boil.
    • Once the water is boiling, reduce the flame and simmer the potatoes for 35-45 mins or until it is just cooked. Tips: Test for doneness by inserting a small knife into a potato. If minimal pressure is required, the potato is cooked.
    • Cool the potatoes in an ice water bath.
    • After it is cooled, peel off the skin and press the potatoes through a fine sieve and make sure there are no lumps. Set it aside in room temperature.
    • Preheat oven to 200°C.
    • Apply a generous amount of soften butter at room temperature evenly onto the ramekin, add the breadcrumbs and coat the sides of the ramekin. Repeat this for the remaining 4 ramekins.
    • In a large bowl, combine the cheeses, sliced spring onion/chives, salt, black pepper grind, caramelised onion, Knorr salted egg yolk powder and nutmeg powder.
    • Warm up milk and butter and add it into the mixture.
    • Whisk egg white in a large bowl until stiff peak. Tips: Place the large bowl above a pool of ice water bath to speed up the whisking process.
    • Gently fold in the egg white into the mash potato mixture.
    • Spoon 30 g of this mixture into the ramekin, add in a frozen salted egg yolk lava cube and top up with another 36 g of the mixture. Repeat this for the remaining 4 ramekins.
    • Place all 5 ramekins on a baking tray and bake it for 9 mins or until it is puffy and golden brown.
    • Once it is done, remove the baking pan from the oven and set it aside to cool for about 5 mins before unmoulding it. Sprinkle with the paprika powder.
