I recently discovered a new little sweet nestling amongst the many mouth watering ones in the Hauser shop. Of course I make it my duty to test all the new ones out and obviously go back over the ones I particularly love to ensure they keep up to standard – it is all part of the job!!!
Anyway this new little ‘morselet’ is a seasonal delicacy – it’s called Mont Blanc because it shapes itself on that famous peak and it is an Autumn treat as its main ingredient is chestnut. Sitting on a delicate base of cream and meringue its structure is vermicelli pipped from a chestnut mousse which is quite magical. It is then capped with a small fluffy topping of cream and meringue.
Every year they are celebrated like long lost friends and so they should be – they are a healthy and versatile food which are fun and festive to play around with both for sweet and savoury dishes….. am just off back to have another slice of that cake, just to check ingredients as it were!
