Dure Mousses

Of Men and Mousse

Mousse is an airy, whipped dessert that brings all the richness and flavour of a dessert into a light, rich, and delicious treat. Akin to whipped cream, mousse is delicately whipped but has an even airier texture. It comes in a wide variety of flavours, the most common being chocolate, but it also can come in sweet, fruity, herby, and even savoury flavours as well. The primary binding ingredients for a mousse are eggs, cream, or even gelatin. This allows the mousse to be stiff while retaining its airy qualities.

The Historical Significance of Mousse

The word mousse is French for “foam,” and the dessert is French in origin. The evolution of flavoured mousses actually began with savoury mousse in 18th century France. Dessert mousses didn’t appear in the food repertoire until the latter half of the 19th century, and they were generally fruit mousses.

Chocolate mousse was first popularized in America in the 1930’s, which coincided with the introduction of both chocolate pudding mix and the electric mixer. This fateful meeting brought about the invention of mousse dishes in America as they are known and loved today. Beyond the chocolate mousse, other flavoured mousses began getting popular after the second World War, when French food became more popular in the United States.

Mousse represents technological advances in the kitchen. It represents the melding of cultures, and the experiment of flavours.

Everyone’s Favorite, the Cappuccino

The Origins of Cappuccino

Originating in Austria, the cappuccino is easily one of the world’s favourite coffee drinks. Typically made of double espresso shots and steamed milk, the drink provides a perfect balance of taste and caffeine to people across the globe.

Originally called “kapuziner”, a German name, the drink as we generally know it first appeared in Viennese coffee shops sometime in the 1700s. Cappuccino, as a name, comes from the Italian word “cappuccino”, meaning hood, and is believed to have been inspired by a Capuchin monk—hence the name.

In its original form, the cappuccino (then “kapuziner”) was found in German and Austria coffee houses, and was first described as simply “coffee with milk and sugar”, with no other mention of it composition or how it was created. When it pops up in writing again in the 1850s, it is described similarly, but with the addition of spices, though there is no mention of exactly which spices those may have been.

The name “kapuziner”, which was inspired by the Capuchin monks as previously mentioned, refers not to the actual hood of the monks but rather the colour of the hood, which was similar to the colour of the drink after the milk was added.

From Kapuziner to Cappuccino

The Italian variation of the cappuccino does not appear until the 1930s, and it appears to resemble a Viennese coffee with whipped cream which is then sprinkled with cinnamon or chocolate. Over the next few decades, the drink evolved into the basis of the cappuccino as we know it, with the steamed milk covering.

North Americans originally mistook the steamed milk “cover” as the basis for the name, believing the white covering to be the “monk’s hood”, though of course that was later discovered to not be the case.
