The history of National Cheese Soufflé Day is devoid of details. The dish itself is of French origin. It grew in popularity in the mid-19th century. The final recipe was developed by Marie-Antoine Karem. The soufflés were made in specially designed ovens, where the fire was blown by a passing draught.

The soufflé is always made with whipped egg whites until frothy. Yolks are then added to them. In this case, cheese is used as a filling, which allows you to give the dish a special savory taste.

Soufflés became very popular in restaurants in New York at the beginning of the 20th century and then spread throughout the United States. Soufflés have always been considered a gourmet dish for real gourmets.
