A Special Dessert White Chocolate Mousse with Strawberry Sauce
Sometimes in life, a person uniquely touches you. My friend Elsa Gerst “Bunny” deBeer was one of those people. Although, I know that I first met her during the period when I was the principal bassist at Albany Symphony Orchestra. It feels like this lovely, gentle lady was always part of my life, despite the long distance between her home on the Hudson River and mine in Tuscon. Bunny opened my eyes to books, art, travel and slightly exotic (for me, at the time) flavours.
Sadly, I had to say goodbye to this beautiful friend in December as a tribute I created this sweet dessert an elegant White Chocolate Mousse with a Strawberry Sauce in her honour.
White Chocolate Mousse with Strawberry Sauce
This mousse is simple to make, all you need good quality white chocolate and fresh eggs. The decoration is personal, but I chose to use strawberries, edible flowers and mint leaves.
Note: this can also be served in individual goblets or small dishes.
