Chocolate Olive Oil Mousse w/Sea Salt & Berries

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup TAO mild to medium intensity EVOO. Add subtle flavor twist and substitute TAO blood orange, lemon or basil olive oil for the EVOO
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • For garnish
    • Berries
    • Chocolate shavings
    • Fleur de Sel or French Grey sea salt, optional
    • Mint or basil leaves, optional

Directions

  1. Add chopped chocolate to the top pot of a double-boiler, or add chocolate to a heat-safe bowl and then place over a pan of simmering water ensuring the bowl does not touch the water.
  2. Warm chocolate and stir until melted and smooth.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in egg yolks, olive oil, warm water and Himalayan salt until thoroughly blended.
  4. Using an electric mixer and a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until frothy.
  5. Add sugar and continue to beat until soft peaks form.
  6. To create the mousse, carefully fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until white streaks are gone, and then repeat two more times using 1/3 of the egg whites each time.
  7. Gently spoon mousse into glasses and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.  Garnish with chocolate shavings, berries and Fleur de Sel or French Grey sea salt and mint or basil leaves before serving.
