Carrot Souffle...the recipe

This is the purported official recipe that has been acclaimed and widely sought after for years! In Baton Rouge, LA the local newspaper was apparently able to get a scaled-down version of the recipe for a feature it was doing.

as posted on the Baton Rouge Morning Advocate online edition a few years ago...

Piccadilly's carrot souffle' is one of the most often requested recipes, so here it is from The Advocate Online. Enjoy your holidays.

I have the original recipe. This one doesn't seem to mesh. Maybe I should sell it on e bay, eh?

It may be the Malmberg effect, "I'm sorry, our recipes are scaled for restaurant quanities (small batches), and wouldn't be suitable for home preparation."
