LORELAI: This is a very delicate, fragile situation. It’s like one of your soufflés. If you don’t do it right it’s a disaster.
SOOKIE: And you have to order it 45 minutes in advance.

A soufflé is a classic French baked egg dish which can either be savoury or sweet; its name is from the French for “breathe, puff”. After being cooked, a soufflé will be fluffy and puffed-up, but it will go down after a few minutes, so the serving must be timed with great precision.
