I happened to see Justine Schofield at the Brisbane Good Food and Wine show with her new bubba. What a cutie. This EVOO mousse recipe was one I originally converted to the Thermomix for Justine when she did some work for Thermomix Oz, way back when! Loads has happened since. Clearly. She is a superstar and super lovely to boot. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person.
Anyhoo, this recipe has been around for ages, and it is perfect inside a pastry shell, and of course a chocolate pastry can never be bad. Fresh raspberries are plentiful just now, so get on it people. Delish!
Some other raspberry favourites on here:
