Congratulations to Natalie who won our #RTWflavors mini-culinary competition with her brilliant 'Spicy Chocolate Soufflé with Avocado Whipped Cream' recipe which we have republished below for you all to enjoy:

Yields: 3, 3” soufflés

3 egg whites
3 egg yolks
pinch of cream of tartar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter
3 ramekins

Preheat the oven to 375°.

Butter the inside of your ramekin and dust with the sugar. Shake out the excess.

Using a mixer, beat your egg whites in a dry bowl. Slowly add the sugar and cream of tartar. Beat your egg whites until soft peaks form. Be careful not to beat too long, as they will get dried out.

Meanwhile, use a double boiler to melt your chocolate and butter while stirring constantly. When thoroughly melted, remove from the heat and beat in your egg yolks one at a time. Add your cayenne pepper (feel free to add more or less depending on your taste) and your cinnamon. In batches, fold your egg whites into your chocolate mixture.

Place your ramekins on top of a cookie sheet. Fill your ramekins about 1 centimeter from the top. Put in the oven for 15 minutes.

For the avocado whipped cream:

1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 avocado, mashed
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Whip 1 pint of heavy whipping cream on high until it thickens. Add your avocado and powdered sugar.

How does it taste? Well, it’s awesome. The cayenne provides a subtle, steady burn to complement the sweetness of the chocolate.  And of course, the lightness of the soufflé paired with the rich avocado whipped cream is simply scrumptious.


With such diversity and color among the different flavors Tim included, we decided what better way to get people inspired about using them in their cooking than to create a photographic tribute for each place and each set of flavors on the map. Explore these graphics below.

You can also find all of the individual images on our World of Flavors Pinterest board.
