The history of mousse begins in France. The population of the country is very proud of the creation of the dessert, so it is easy to find it in almost all establishments. It happened in 1894. True, it was not sweet: it was prepared from whipped cream, gelatin, vegetable or fish ingredients.
In 1900, the popular French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec came up with the idea of whipping chocolate and egg whites together. Initially, such a mixture was called “chocolate mayonnaise”, then changed to the usual name. In 1977, white chocolate mousse was made in America for the first time, it won the hearts of people!
Throughout the 20th century, mousse gained popularity and was used everywhere. The recipe gradually changed: sugar, cream, butter were added, and new flavors were added to the chocolate base. This is high confectionery art!
It is noteworthy that:
- mousse cakes are now popular – a multi-layered creation of mousse, biscuit and filling;
