Recipe For Grapefruit Curd Soufflé

Using the grapefruit curd I made in the microwave I made Grapefruit Curd Soufflé. This is a simple recipe and does not make use of crème pâtissière for the base.

You will have read that Dave and I applied for a UK Visa. The last time we applied it took 3 days. This time I read up on the website how long they expected the Visa to take. I had to get our timing perfect as we need the Visa to last until after the 15th of February 2018. We have applied for a 6 month Visa which is valid from the day it is stamped into the passport. The British Government indicated that the application should take 15 working days. In order to not risk cutting it too fine we applied 21 working days in advance. I did not take into consideration the day we went for our appointment. Or the day we fly out of South Africa.

And then the waiting game began. I wrote the countdown on my wall calendar and hoped and prayed we would not find ourselves in trouble. My friend Rosey who is a travel agent told me that it would take at least 20 days. I did a quick internet search and saw that the British High Commission had been interviewed regarding the Visa application process. In the interview it was stated that the turn around would be 19 days. And so, I was prepared to wait and did not stress about the situation. Much like one needs to do with a soufflé. You need to wait patiently while they rise, and do not worry that they won’t. As you can see from my grapefruit curd soufflé they started dropping quite quickly. The flavour was excellent though. And, our Visas arrived after 15 working days!

  2. Love the new look of your blog Tandy! And phew, that is close with the 15 days. I once waited for a passport patiently but then found out that they lost the application. Luckily they rushed one through but sometimes being patient is difficult!
