  _____________________ smoothing secrets prevent lumps by stirring
  flour into melted butter with a wire whisk, gradually add the half
  and half white stirring constantly. cook four mixture over medium
  heat; high heat can cause it to curdle _____________________
  eggsclusive secrets carefully separate cold eggs stirring a small
  amount of hot mixture into beaten egg yolks warms them. This step --
  called tempering -- prevents the egg yolks from lumping (coagulating)
  _______________________ puffing secrets even the smallest amount of
  fat, including that in a ddrop of yolk, keeps the egg white from
  beating properly. Because wooden and plastic bowls tend to absorb fat
  avoid using them when beating egg whites stiff but not dry mean egg
  whites no longer slip when the bowl is titled. To fold in a beated
  egg white, use a down-across-up-and-over motion with a rubber spatual
  to cut through the carrot mixture. Fold just until there aren't any
  remaining streaks.  don't stir -- it forces out the air in the beaten
  white. ___________________ dish size is important; if the container
  is too small, the mixture may run over, if the container is too large
  the mixture won't rise to the rim and have it tradition appearance.
  Use a straight-sided casserole if you don't have a traditional
  souffle dish. _______________________ BAKING SECRETS Place souffle
  into a preheated oven immediately after mixing. Don't peek, opening
  the oven door will cause a souffle to collapse. the top will be
  slightly firm to the touch.
