So, pressing onward, I went ahead and made the goat cheese mousse. I must admit I am not a goat cheese fan, I have only ever tasted one I really liked. So I bought the mildest goat cheese I could find. I mixed it up in the food processor as instructed added the cream and at the very end added the herbs and salt and pepper. I didn't take a picture but it was more soupy than mousse-y. From reading others' experiences it seems this is a fairly common occurence. Chef Keller is known for sourcing only the finest ingredients and I suspect that has much to do with his ability to mousse this stuff.... oh and... not to mention skill and talent!
Anyhoo, I piped the soup-mousse onto my flat crisps. A couple of them kept the little star swirl for a few seconds but not long enough for the camera.
As you can see even the picture sucks. Maybe my heart just wasn't in it. I ate one and it tasted ok, but as I said goat cheese isn't my cheese of choice. Wonderful Supportive husband said they were "not bad". All in all not a rousing endorsement, but if you are a goat cheese fan, and you don't mind serving on flat chips instead of tulips... these might be for you!
More (better) canapes on the way
See you soon!
