National Mousse Day

National Mousse Day, on November 30th, is a popular treat that can be savory or sweet.

What can we do about mousse? In French, the word "mousse" means "foam." To make a mousse, we usually whip egg whites or cream. The consistency of mousse can vary from light and airy to thick and creamy depending on the type of mousse.

This versatile dish lends itself well to both desserts and savory recipes. In fact, several types of mousse can be served at the same dish. There are virtually no limits to the flavors we can incorporate into a mousse, from a smokey salmon mousse to a tart lemon or creamy chocolate mousse for dessert.

Mousse can also be used as a filling for other dishes such as pastries and parfaits. A savory mousse goes well with fruit and cheese plates, making beautiful appetizers as well.
