French Fridays: Kids make chocolate mousse

Chocolate mousse from In the French Kitchen with Kids by Mardi Michels on eatlivetravelwrite.comWelcome to French Fridays where I’m excited to share another video in the series of kids making dishes from my cookbook (eeep – it’s out NEXT WEEK!).

Last year, you might remember that a few of the recipes from the book got mass-tested because the Grade 4 class elected to research French food and culture for a project. Each group wrote research questions and answered them and decided they wanted to “present their knowledge” to an audience by making a recipe video.

Last year’s group made profiteroles, crêpes and crème caramel. This year’s group chose baguette, crème brûlée, the ever-popular crêpes and chocolate mousse.
