November 30 is National Mousse Day, and, just to clear up any confusion, this day is for the pudding-like dessert, made fluffy with egg whites or whipped cream. If you’re digging out your hair products, take a breather (ditto, if you were looking for a small mouse or a large moose!).
The most popular mousse flavors are chocolate, coffee, and different fruits, but I found out something new today. Apparently, there are some recipes for non-dessert mousse – made with pureed fish, foie gras, vegetables, or other “savory” ingredients. You can call me boring, but I think I’ll be sticking to my plain old chocolate. I just can’t quite picture seafood mousse!
