White Chocolate and Passionfruit Mousse

A light + decadent dessert for summer

This delicious, airy, sweet mousse is a current favourite of the Monday Morning Cooking Club team, especially with summer approaching.  It is a refreshing yet sophisticated dessert from the kitchen of Janette Kornhauser on the Gold Coast and appears in our new book, Now for Something Sweet.

It looks gorgeous served in individual glasses.

Choose a good quality white chocolate for this recipe, it will really make a difference.

Instructions
  1. Melt the white chocolate and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Using an electric mixer, whisk the egg yolks and caster sugar until thick and pale.
  3. Fold half of the passionfruit pulp into the egg yolk mixture and then half of the melted white chocolate. Repeat with the remaining passionfruit and chocolate. Be careful, if the chocolate is too hot, the mixture may seize.
  4. Whip the cream until soft peaks form and gently fold into the passionfruit mixture.
  5. In separate bowl whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form, and gently fold into the passionfruit cream mixture.
  6. Spoon into a large glass bowl or smaller individual glasses and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  7. To serve, scatter the raspberries and extra passionfruit pulp over the top.

    This recipe was a disaster. The mousse tasted like custard and it separated out. I have made mousse before and this was a huge miss.

      So sorry to hear this Melissa. Happy to workshop it with you and work out what went wrong. It’s important in this recipe that the white chocolate is not hot when you add it to egg yolks as it can seize and separate, and you don’t want to cook the yolks with the hot chocolate. Mousses can also separate when the egg whites are even slightly over beaten. The cream also needs to be beaten carefully so it can be gently folded into the yolk mixture before the addition of the whites. Hope this helps a little….we test and retest all our recipes so we know they do work well, and sometimes one tiny thing can impact the result.

Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.

Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.

And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.

Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.

I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.

We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.

(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
