Do you watch MasterChef?
Gary and I are addicted to it. Glued to the TV at 7pm. Every day.
Sometimes, we don't get to watch and have it recorded. Last night, I watched Friday night's episode and they were making a french chocolate mousse. YES, read: CHOCOLATE MOUSSE!
Mmmmmm.... I had to make Gary pause that episode. I ran into my kitchen and whipped up a batch of FRENCH CHOCOLATE MOUSSE and it was bloody fantastic. Pardon my French!
300g Good quality Dark Chocolate
200ml Olive Oil
Melt chocolate in a bain-marie, careful not to overheat. Whip up the cream until soft peaks are just formed, careful not to overwhip. Emulsify olive oil into melted chocolate. Then with a steady stream, pour chocolate and olive oil mixture into whipped cream, lightly whipping it all together. Lick spoon and bowl clean.
Sorry, there's no time for a photo. I was too busy licking.
