Chocolate mousse in a chocolate teardrop topped with chocolate ganache, served with Crème Anglaise and raspberry coulis.
A mousse is a prepared food that incorporates air bubbles to give it a light and airy texture. It can range from light and fluffy to creamy and thick, depending on preparation techniques. Dessert mousses are typically made with whipped egg whites or whipped cream, and generally flavored with chocolate or puréed fruit. (source: Wikipedia)
Chocolate ganache is made by heating up the cream and pour it over the chocolate so that the chocolate melts. It is stirred gently until smooth.
Crème Anglaise (French for “English cream”) is a custard and usually used as a sauce for a plated dessert. It contains egg yolks, sugar, milk and usually flavoured with vanilla.
A coulis is a thick sauce that is made of fruit or vegetables puree.
