Valencia Orange and White Chocolate Mousse With Fresh Red Strawberries


Orange Curd Mousse:

¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup fresh organic orange juice (Valencia)
2 organic egg yolks
Fine zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons organic butter, unsalted
1 cup freshly whipped organic cream

White chocolate mousse:

3 ounces Callebaut or other high-quality white chocolate
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 cup freshly whipped organic cream


1 cup sliced organic strawberries; sprigs of fresh mint


Prepare the orange curd: In a small stainless-steel or other nonreactive pot, whisk the sugar, cornstarch and juice until dissolved. Bring to a simmer and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks, and then quickly whisk in half of the hot orange mix, working quickly so you don’t cook the egg. Whisk the orange-egg mixture back into the remaining yolks and bring to a quick boil, still whisking. Remove from heat. Stir in butter. Cool completely.

Combine curd, whipped cream: Once the curd is fully chilled, gently fold it into the whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate.

Prepare white chocolate mousse: Chop the white chocolate and place in a metal bowl set over a pot of simmering hot water. Melt chocolate, being careful not to let the bowl touch the simmering water. Add 2 tablespoons heavy cream and mix it in completely. Cool to room temperature and fold in whipped cream.

Assembly: Layer the mousses, parfait-style, in four individual parfait glasses with sliced strawberries.

Presentation: Garnish with fresh mint and serve immediately. Note: You can keep berries and mousses refrigerated separately for one day and assemble just before serving.
