Blood Orange Pound Cake

Blood Orange Pound Cake

Happy New Year! I wrote this in 2017. It’s 2020 now. Some time went by! I have changed the photos and updated the recipe with a few changes that I think make the cake even better than it was before. I’m so happy about the changes I made and am still making in my photography and my style. I have been working a lot on this side of the blogging equation and I love it. I hope you do too.
Last year was a year of changes, big ones. Happy ones. I got married to the love of my life, the most wonderful man on earth; we moved to our first home together which implied changing neighborhoods and kind of getting to know the city again; and I started my online pastry shop!

A few weeks back Eileen contacted me via Instagram! because she was working on a food photography documentary and was wondering if I’d like to participate. I was intrigued. I proposed that we meet for coffee so that she could tell me a little more about her project and get to know her a little.
A few days later we met up for breakfast at a cool little café called Mokonuts. She told me she was making a documentary about how people connect through food. She was contacting strangers that were in some way or another related to food, via social networks. Eileen asked if I would be open to cook for her at my home and tell her my story of how I came to be in the food world and in Paris. She would be taking photos of the whole thing, me cooking, talking, plating, eating.

Cheese souffle was a classic at my parents’ house growing up. During my last years of high school, we use to have French cheese souffle once a week. It was a happy day for the whole family; we loved having this airy, light and delicious cheese bomb. Many years later, as I sat in class watching the chef how to make cheese souffle I thought about those days, when we had family diner in our pajamas, and it made me smile. I love to make classic cheese souffle and it is a lot less complicated than popular belief. I promise. Just a few key tips you must follow, and you will end up with the most gorgeous looking cheese souffle ever.
