National Chocolate Souffle Day

National Chocolate Souffle Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to this wonderful dessert. Chocolate soufflé has won over millions of people with its tenderness and excellent taste. The holiday is celebrated on February 28.


Chocolate is a very old food product. It has been known to mankind for several thousand years. Scientists have found that chocolate first appeared in the Aztec and Mayan tribes who lived in Latin America. Back then it was liquid: the natives heated water over a fire, into which they poured the ground cocoa beans. Such a drink with a bright chocolate flavor was a significant part of various ceremonial rituals. Chocolate entered Europe during the era of the Great Geographical Discoveries, and the first bar of chocolate did not appear until 1842 in England.

The creation of chocolate soufflé once again confirms the great popularity of such a product as chocolate and its relevance in cooking. Souffle is a sweet product made from a custard base and well whipped egg whites. The recipe for this dessert is attributed to French chef Vincent La Chapelle, who published it in his recipe book back in 1742. This dish was prepared for the high society. Over time, the dessert has spread around the world, and today we celebrate National Chocolate Souffle Day to enjoy it to the fullest!
