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.
