Chocolate mousse without eggs

Still a few days left (5 days from now that Iam writing these few lines) and there is one little girl that is still not decided to show up her face…just nothing at the monitoring a sleepy baby and a kind of tired mum. Hopefully A. and my mother are here to give an hand, most of all keep Jack busy.

It’s the 4th birthday within a month,the one of A. for this week end. His mother prepared some farrotto with pumpkin, same than a risotto but with farro instead of rice, parmesan, almonds and nuts. Good! I recommend it. It is a nice way to change from the classical risotto, and actually the farro gives a stronger taste with the pumpkin than the rice. As a dessert (actually two!) a chocolate mousse without eggs according to a recipe from Pierre Hermé and a meringue lemon pie based on a recipe from Christophe Felder in the last Elle à Table. This chocolate mousse is quite original as it does not contain any eggs but whipped cream, but also has crunchy pieces of caramel.
