Only the Best Semisweet Chocolate Recipes
TREND: Exotically flavored chocolate\r\n
WHO: Katrina Markoff, CEO of Vosges Haut-Chocolat in Chicago\r\n
WHAT: Markoff, one of the first to infuse chocolate with unexpected ingredients, named this Asian-tinged creation after one of her most popular truffles. Its Japanese flavors ginger, wasabi, and black sesame seeds are the building blocks for an inspired cake.
If you're not familiar with soufflé cakes, this dessert may look a little odd but it's delicious. The cake is designed to be eaten once it has collapsed and cooled (just the opposite of a regular soufflé).
