Food History

A mousse is an airy, delicate cream in which the ingredients are finely chopped, pureed or emulsified and mixed with whipped cream or egg yolks and served very cold. These preparations can be either sweet or savory and get their name from the French word “mousse,” meaning foam, in reference to their light, foamy nature.
