Chocolate Mousse

 

This recipe is truly for chocolate lovers. It is a classic French chocolate mousse. It is made with French meringue (raw egg whites.) Very fluffy, elegant and not bitter. I always dislike any dessert that taste bitter at any point.

 

There are various ways to plate chocolate mousse. The best advice I can give you is to think how you want to serve it before you chill it. Once set, it won’t look the same if you play around with it. The easiest way to serve it is to pipe it using a piping bag and a star tip.

You can serve it with raspberry sauce, strawberry sauce and/or double chocolate sauce for those chocolate lovers. The options are limitless.

Gyudon (Beef Bowl)

 

Ever since I was introduced to the Japanese cuisine, I was hooked with the beef bowl. It has rice. I like rice. It has beef and pickled ginger. I love meat and ginger root.

It is just the perfect combination in a small dish. They are usually served in a small bowl in restaurants. That is why I always order two. I know. I like to eat, but I need to nourish myself with good stuff and this dish is one of them.

Carrot Ginger Soup

 

I am finally off for one week. All I want to do is be a couch potato. Plain and simple. When you are like me, every day is something new, overbooked, not sleeping enough and the list goes on, all you want is do nothing. It feels awesome that I don’t have to worry that something is due tomorrow. I am not completely free this week, but at least I get to breathe and COOK!

Yes, cooking. I am a chef. I am beyond tired of eating out. It’s a sacrifice. I know. But, if I don’t do it this way, my plans for 2015 won’t come go through.

Now, let’s talk about this recipe. I love carrot ginger soup. One thing I am very picky about is the fact that if you say you are giving me carrot ginger soup, then I better taste some ginger in it. My taste buds say two teaspoons are enough to make you taste it. One teaspoon is not enough. If you are a ginger lover, then go for it and add more. It is simple and tasty. It serves two as an appetizer. You can serve it as a hot amuse bouche in a shot glass for a larger crowd.

Bon Appétit!
