Chocolate Mousse

Rowan's signature dish...

Melt 200g (dark) chocolate in a large bowl
Separate 4 eggs and beat the whites with a little bit of sugar (approx 1tsp) until very stiff
Whip 300ml cream

Cool chocolate and vigorously stir in the yolks into the chocolate bowl (make sure chocolate cool so that yolks don’t “cook”)
Fold in the cream til mixed
Fold in the egg white (gently so not to “deflate”)

Pour into nice bowl or individual bowls/parfait/rammikens
Chill for a couple of hours and eat
