State secrets declassified, episode 1: Chocolate Mousse

August 24, 2009 1 comment

While I take great pride in my cooking, to my own credit, I’m not stingy about sharing my recipes. Great food, along with great literature and music, belongs to the world. Therefore, as a public service, I will occasionally provide a recipe to one of my best dishes. First off: chocolate mousse. It’s just so impressive. And I can tell you how to make it in 5 minutes.

You need:

4 ounces of semisweet chocolate, plus extra for garnish

15 ounces of ricotta cheese

2 tablespoons of powdered sugar

Melt the chocolate. Pour it into a blender along with the ricotta cheese and sugar. Or a food processor.  Blend it, baby.

Serve it with some shaved chocolate for prettiness’ sake; I like to plop in a few raspberries, too.

That’s about four servings, depending on how many gourmands you’re entertaining. Just multiply the proportions for more. (That is, 8 oz. chocolate to 30 oz. ricotta to 4 tbsp. sugar for 8 people, etc.)
