About National Mousse Day
Mousse is a French word meaning "foam" or "froth," and it is a dessert that is made by whipping cream, egg whites, or both, to create a light and airy texture. The origins of mousse can be traced back to 18th-century France, where it was made with whipped cream and served as a sweet, cold dish. It became popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century.
It's first recipe was published by Marie-Antoine Careme, a famous French chef and culinary writer, in his 1815 cookbook "Le Patissier Royal Parisien."
It became a popular dessert in French restaurants and later, around the world. Today, mousse can be made with a variety of ingredients, such as chocolate, fruit, and even savory ingredients.
