Goat’s Cheese Mousse with Grape

Goat’s Cheese Mousse with Grape

I quite fancy a cheese board! This Goat’s Cheese Mousse with Grape dessert hits just the spot when you’re craving both savoury and sweet!

As always, I love creating modern desserts that have a handful of elements, easy to pair with seasonal produce. For this dessert, the grapes are fabulous both roasted and fresh; their sweetness is complemented by the tangy goat’s cheese or chevre and mellowed by the nutty coffee crumble. But you could just as easily use plums, peaches, pears, berries, figs and more throughout the year. Similarly to the transparent, delicate disc shapes created when cutting grapes, be considerate of the way you prepare your ingredients. Changing the shape or experimenting with how ingredients are cut and prepared, can change the eating experience.  This also allows for a variety of creative plating presentations which can be a lot of fun for you and your guests!
