Neapolitan Mousse

So there are a lot of mousses shown on the table in Tiana’s fantasy restaurant song. 

They’re pretty much all just iterations of the same mousses though, so I made a 3 different mousses. White Chocolate, Chocolate, and Strawberry. And actually, the mousses fit into the other recipes on the blog today. So for this Neapolitan mousse, here’s the recipe for the White Chocolate. The next recipe will feature the Strawberry Mousse and the Chocolate Horn Pastry will feature the Chocolate Mousse. Just make all three of those and layer them for the Neapolitan Mousse.

  1. 7 ounces white chocolate, chopped into very small pieces
  2. 2 egg yolks

  5. In another bowl, whip remaining 1 cup of the cream to almost stiff peaks. Fold half the whipped cream into the white chocolate mix to lighten and then fold in the remaining whipped cream.

Mousse
  1. 5 Cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  2. 1/3 Cup sugar
  3. 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  4. 2 Tbsp. water
  5. 2 tsp. unflavored gelatin powder
  6. 3/4 Cup heavy cream
Ganache
  1. 1 cup heavy cream
  2. 3/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  3. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  4. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  5. Prepared Graham Cracker Crust
Mousse
  1. In a small saucepan over very low heat, cook the berries, sugar, lemon juice, and water until very liquid, about 30 minutes.
  2. Strain the mixture through a sieve and let cool completely.
  3. You should have about 1 1/4 Cups of strawberry juice.
  4. Pour 3/4 cup of the juice into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the surface to soften.
  5. Reheat the remaining juice until it is warm to the touch.
  6. Add the softened gelatin mixture to the warm juice and whisk until the gelatin has completely dissolved.
  7. In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the cream until it holds medium peaks.
  8. Fold one-third of it into the strawberry mixture.
  9. Gently fold in the remainder until no streaks remain.
  10. Pour mousse into a dome mold (or bowl)
  11. Let set in fridge for 2+ hours and then freezer for 4+hours
Ganache
  1. In a saucepan, heat the cream, stirring frequently to discourage scorching, until it begins to simmer and seems like it might start boiling any moment (but don't let it boil).
  2. Remove from heat and whisk in the remaining ingredients until smooth. Let the mixture cool to your desired thickness. It will never become hard, per se, but it will set to a smooth, spreadable consistency.
  3. Cut the prepared graham cracker crust into a circular shape the size of the mousse mold.
  4. Run the outside of the mousse mold under warm water for a few seconds, the mousse should slide out easily on top of the crust.
  5. Cover with ganache
  6. Top with a cherry

Tiana’s Swamp Gumbo

The swamp gumbo was really fun to make. I couldn’t find a pumpkin at this time of year, but I did find an acorn squash, which looks and tastes very similar. The same principles would apply to cooking in a pumpkin. I tried to find veggies that you would find around New Orleans and cook it as close to how she would. I think it turned out pretty well. Make sure to mince up your veggies!

Will it turn you into a Prince?

I really really liked the mousse. The white chocolate was probably my favorite, followed close behind by the strawberry. But they were all almost equally good. The swamp gumbo wasn’t as good as the gumbo of last week, but it was still really good and vegetarian!

Verdict:

Neapolitan Mousse – 9/10

Strawberry Mousse – 9/10

Chocolate Horn Pastry – 9/10

Swamp Gumbo – 7.5/10

Bolt – Waffle Burger
