Dorie Greenspan Double-Mint Milk Chocolate Mousse and Gelée with mint flowers and sour cream

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Double-Mint Chocolate Mousse and Gelée

Ok, so we all know Paris will see fewer visitors this year due to  travel restrictions. I’m sure if you were planning a trip there this summer, you’re pretty sad to not be able to go. But the good news is that, thanks to the magic of technology, if you have flour, butter, yeast and […]
