anglaise-based choc mousse

2913 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  thebighat
Went to a demo by a Valronha rep and she mentioned that their mousse recipes, which she promised to forward and didn't, are anglaise-based, rather than a sabayon kind of thing. Anybody ever try this? I have been making a ganache the day before I need to make mousse to lessen the chances of chocolate chips. I may give this a whirl and see what happens.
