Chocolate Polenta Soufflé
At Marc Vetri’s flagship modern Italian restaurant in Philadelphia’s Center City, this chocolate soufflé cake has been a signature offering for 15 years. It’s a crowd-pleaser with a molten ganache center and a topping of exceptional vanilla gelato, but its chocolate flavor is surprisingly deep and complex thanks to a spicy 58 percent cocoa couverture from the French producer Cacao Barry. A bit of dry polenta in the batter adds a pleasant, just slightly grainy texture.
