Five Food Finds about Chocolate Mousse

  • If you are in France, no matter which region, no matter where you eat, you will most likely be offered the divine French dessert Mousse au Chocolat.
  • The word “mousse” is a French word that means foam, so Mousse au Chocolat means chocolate foam.
  • When mousse first hit the culinary scene in 1894 it was reserved for savory dishes like fish and vegetables.

  • Thankfully the name that he first gave it, ‘mayonnaise de chocolat’, has been changed.
