National Mousse Day is celebrated on November 30th every year, and we can’t wait to whip up some lovey-dovey sweetness for our near and dear ones.
If you’re fond of decadent desserts, you should definitely get the most out of this food holiday. Did you know that the word ‘mousse’ is derived from French? In Old French, it means ‘froth’ or ‘foam’.
As the name suggests, this appetizer is made by beating egg whites and cream until they turn light and fluffy like foam.
Although it is more popularly served as a dessert, mousse can also be prepared as a savory.
Depending on the type of mousse, its consistency can vary from thick and creamy to light and airy.
Originally prepared in France, mousse found its way into the United States only in the late 19th century. And aren’t we all glad that it did?
