My first and only trip to Paris happened in the spring of 2002. My BFF was studying abroad in Belgium, so I met up with her there. Oh, we had quite the whirlwind European adventure! When we arrived in Paris for a couple of days, I was in complete awe. The history and beauty just instantly filled my senses. We managed to get around pretty well since I speak and read French pretty decently. When we sat down to have a coffee I also ordered my very first ever mousse au chocolat. It was a life changing experience eating that airy, ethereal treat. So this week I tried to recapture that magic right at home! It was a lot less fussy than I thought it would be.
Oh my goodness, that first spoonful transported me right back to Paris. The dark chocolate mousse had the most incredible, deep flavor with a texture like clouds. It made me one happy woman! I hope you all love it as much as I did. Bon appetite, mes amis!
