COGNAC CHOCOLATE, RICH CHOCOLATE MOUSSE WITH COGNAC BAVAROIS | BIG BOYS OVEN SWEET DESSERT

This round I decided to be rather more adventurous as i wanted to do something out of the box, something unique, something tasty , something different from my regulars and something appealing, and the creativeness of Chef Titan Tsang had attracted me. Not only his good looks that magnetified his audience but the way he picked his ingredients had attracted me to explore his next recipe . . . . . Cognac Chocolate, a rich chocolate mousse with incredible intensity of cognac bavarois layered over a delicious hazelnut dacouoise and finished off with fully flavoured of craquelin. Now come and join me on my sweet exploration which begins now . . . . . . . . .
