Helen Rosner curated a delightful series called Recipe Comix for Saveur’s website from 2011 to 2015 and asked me to contribute a piece. The brief was refreshingly simple: “draw us a recipe.” I was living in Paris and studying a lot of French at the time so my recipe is for a soufflĂ© but it’s also a poem about how sometimes things don’t pan out even though you had all the ingredients and followed all the steps exactly.
