Goats Cheese Mousse with Pineapple Gel Recipe

Chef Matthew Mason at The Jack in the Green in Rockbeare, near Exeter, has developed a tasty goats cheese mousse recipe featuring Frobishers Pineapple Juice.

Matthew garnishes the mousse with diced cooked beetroot, a fine layer of gingerbread puree and a sprinkling of ginger breadcrumbs plus dots of pineapple gel and a scattering of fresh herbs. The following recipe serves four.

Roughly crumble the room temperature goats cheese into a food processor and pulse until smooth.

Warm the milk in a small pan and add the softened gelatine to dissolve.

Add the milk/gelatine mix to the food processor with the goats cheese and blend until smooth.

Slowly add the double cream and blend until fully combined then remove into a piping bag and set aside until needed.
