MMMM Lemon White Chocolate Mousse

Many of you know that I am by education a chef, by experience a pastry chef, and by choice a caterer. I don't get to do a lot of pastry work these days since it needs to be done last minute, and even after the move there is not enough room for the dedicated refrigeration that is needed (I hate butter that tastes like garlic).

However this week for a special event I made Lemon White Chocolate Mousse.  The excitement is that I created the recipe from scratch and it is incredible!  We will be serving it up in a martini glass with fresh black berries.

1 cup Lemon Juice
1 cup Sugar
4 Eggs
12 oz Butter
8 cups White Chocolate Chips
4 Egg Whites
1 cup Sugar
8 cups Cream
Makes about 50 4oz servings

Combine the juice, sugar and whole eggs over low heat (don’t scald) to create a lemon curd. 
Take off  the heat.
Add the butter and white chocolate chips to the lemon curd, and stir in and allow to melt slowly.
Whip the eggs and sugar into a meringue. Set aside.
Whip the cream. Set aside.
Fold the meringue into the lemon mixture.
Fold in the whipped cream.

Off to make more goodies.  Chocolate marquis pavlova any one?
