Frozen Rhubarb and White Chocolate Souffle

“I quote and agree with everything Chef Anna Olson says about this recipe - one featured on her Food Network Canada TV program, SUGAR. "This recipe looks like a spectacular baked souffle without the effort or worry of whether it will sink! Essentially a light, frozen mousse, the rhubarb flavour compliments the white chocolate making it a refreshing dessert."”
