Light but intense thanks to the dark chocolate. And a drop of Kikkoman Soy Sauce gives it that extra umami depth. This is how mousse is supposed to be.

Preparation

Step 1

Separate the egg yolks from the whites and place in two medium-sized metal bowls. Make sure that the bowl for the egg whites is very clean  to ensure that they will stiffen later.

Step 2

Chop the chocolate and melt this in a heatproof bowl over a bain-marie.

Step 3

In the meantime, take another bowl and whip the cream to almost stiff peaks, then whip the egg whites to very stiff peaks. 

Step 4

Now beat the egg yolks together with the sugar, scraped vanilla pod seeds, orange zest and Kikkoman soy sauce over a bain-marie until the mixture thickens slightly. 

Step 5

Remove the mixture from the bain-marie and quickly fold the stiff egg whites, chocolate and cream into the egg yolk mixture, one after the other. 

Step 6

Pour this into a good-sized bowl (not too large) and chill for at least 60 minutes.

Step 7

Before serving, place a dollop of whipped cream on each chocolate mousse and garnish with raspberries and dark chocolate chips.
