A mousse characteristically has a light and airy texture - but is isn't restrained to the chocolate variety, mousse recipes can be savoury or sweet.
Peruse our complete collection of mousse recipes. If you prefer to stick to the traditional variety, Nathan Outlaw's chocolate orange mousse recipe is a winner. It can be layered between shortbread, used as the filling for a tart or simply enjoyed on its own.
For a twist, try a savoury mousse recipe such as Shay Cooper's salt cod mousse, which is perfect for alfresco dining. Or for a great Sunday lunch option, try Galton Blackiston's butternut squash mousse with duck.
