Greetings All,

I am looking for a specific thing. 

Between (roughly) 1980-1990 every bottle of the liquor 'Grand Marnier'
sold in America carried around its neck a small red, recipe booklet.
Among perhaps 6 recipes therein was one for Grand Marnier Soufflé. I
don't remember the others. I am looking for one of those booklets.

	o  Posted queries on the major web recipe/food sites. No luck. (I've
been offered many, many other recipes for Grand Marnier Soufflé, but
that is not what I want.
	o  Since Grand Marnier was at the time distributed in America by
Seagram?s, I telephoned their distribution & publicity offices in New
York. They were very courtious, but they did not remember the little
red booklet. They kindly sent me 2 other recipes for Grand Marnier
soufflé. They are not what I want.
	O  I have also searched the French Grand Marnier site, but their
recipes are different. They are not what I want.
MY RESEARCH PROJECT: I want to acquire one of the original booklets
described above -or- an exact copy of one. The booklet was approx 1" x
1.5". There must have been hundreds of thousands of them distributed
free to buyers in the 1980's, and there must still be hundreds of
copies extant. I want someone to find one for me.

OTHER INFO & POSSIVBLE USE - All bottles of Grand Marnier in this
country now carries the following information:
		"Imported by Marnier-Lapostelle Co New York, NY
	Sole U.S. distributor Schieffelin & Somerset Co. New York, NY."

Thank you for your attention to this request.

Do me a favor, and have a look at the recipe at this link:

There's no indication of where it comes from, but it looks like a page
out the sort of little booket you described, so I wanted to run it by
you, to see if it looks familiar.

Let me know what you think.

To  pafalafa-ga.  Sorry for the delay but I'm not getting email
notifications of requests for info or new comments.  Anyway, the
ingredient list you found looks very much like what I remember.  I'll
try it and see. I'll let you know...but how do I contact you?

Thanks for your response, and my apologies for the lack of email
notification...I'm afraid the system's on the fritz.

Take a look at this page, as it has the full souffle instructions:

I have a feeling that's the one.  Take a few days to try the recipe
out.  You don't need to do anything in particular to close out the
question.  If I don't hear anything back from you, I'll assume it was
the right one, and post an "official" answer, to collect the fee you

On the other hand, if it's not the right one, then post a note to let
me know, and I'll keep on looking.

P.S.  I didn't, at first, see your note, below.  Sounds like you'll
need more than a few days to try things out, but at least you have the
directions now!

I'll give it a few weeks to hear back from you.

To pafalafa-ga,

I've been offline (grrrhh) with a bout of Computer Chaos. But now, as
I bet you can guess, I'm back up. Okay, my friend, tonight I'm giving
the recipe its maiden voyage, and I'll let you know how things come
out. I ever so much hope you've found me the missing rainbow in my

Oh, and Happy Turkey, you bet.

To pafalafa-ga,

Oh, dear, I didn't study the recipe you found for me carefully enough.
It just suddenly looked right. But when I sat down to make it I knew
immediately it wasn't the one from Grand Marnier's little recipe
booklet. The original recipe began with a roux for one thing, and...

But the point is that I am not after a recipe for Grand Marnier
Souffle. I specifically want the small recipe booklet referred to in
my listing. It is the whole booklet I want, not any of the perhaps 6
recipes it holds. I thought I'd been clear on this in my listing, but
I see I hadn't. Apologies.

To restate for all readers: I do _not_ want a recipe for G.M. Souffle.
It is the booklet itself that I am after. Or an authentic copy of

I'm sorry if I wasn't sufficiently clear, and certainly thank you for
giving it a good try.

Bummer.  I was so sure that was it...but obviously not!

If anything else turns up, I'll let you know.

You are right.  That is a question I posted without success 2 years ago. Good eye!

TO:  pafalafa-ga   That list of ingredients looks mighty promising,
but I'll have to try it out to know if it is what I crave. (Also, I
would have liked the directions, oven temp, etc ... but this one is
worth trying.) I'll let you know how it goes within a couple weeks. 
In the meantime, Thanks & Good Catch.
