The yogurt cheese mousse today is a little special mousse, because I don’t mix the yogurt and cheese directly, but actually they are dual flavor mousse that are composed by yogurt mousse and cheese mousse.
Yogurt and cheese have their unique sour taste, however, if mix them directly, the refreshing of yogurt would be totally covered by the dense cheese. So, I separate them respectively and develop dual mousse, it not only reserves their respective characteristics, but also has increased levels of taste, with pinch lemon juice, together takes shape of a peculiar fresh and sour taste.
So, you may have a knowledge that today’s mousse is a little more difficult than the common mousse for we have certainly made two mousses. However, the pain is insignificant comparing to the delicacy.
