Mascarpone Raspberry Mousse Recipe
French Fruit Dessert
This divine looking raspberry mousse recipe is a contribution from Laetitia Schmitt who writes a wonderful
French food blog called Mapom en Cuisine.
It includes mascarpone cheese and comes served on a beautifully contrasting pineapple compote.
Mascarpone Cheese.Although Italian in origin, mascarpone cheese is frequently found in French kitchens, where it often finds
its way into desserts. Its silky, rich taste is more kin to cream then cheese and is the key ingredient in
the Italian dessert tiramisu, also incredibly popular in France.
You should be able to find mascarpone in a gourmet food store or a regular grocery store that has a good
selection of cheeses. Otherwise you can try making your own, which is apparently pretty easy if you use the
Gelatin. This raspberry mousse recipe calls for using sheet gelatin.
Fresh Fruit. Laetitia notes that this raspberry mousse recipe can be made with either fresh raspberries or frozen,
and that you can use either canned pineapple or a fresh one depending on what you have available. As always,
I recommend the fresh if possible, but you should get good results with the other options.
