Our Cheese Soufflé has bold cheese flavor, good stature, and a light, but not-too-airy texture—all without the fussiness of most recipes. To bump up the taste of the cheese without weighing down the soufflé, we combine light-but-potent Parmesan cheese with nutty Gruyère. To get the texture just right while keeping the preparation simple, we beat the egg whites to stiff peaks, and then—rather than carefully folding the whites into the cheese béchamel—we just add the sauce to the egg whites in the mixer and beat everything until it is uniform. Our Bibb and Arugula Salad with Pear and Goat Cheese uses a combination of peppery arugula and soft, buttery bibb lettuce. Thin slices of subtly sweet pear incorporate easily with the greens. Pepitas add crunch, while soft, tangy goat cheese contributes richness. We use lemon juice as the base of the dressing because it pairs well with the sweetness of the fruit.
