This is dead easy, but so yummy. The story goes that people sing about this mousse. And the story also says that once upon a time, a 16 year old boy from the U.S. was spending some time in Geneva with Madame Piletta. And she used to do this mousse and finally allowed for the recipe to be taken to the States. And now (many years later) it ended up in Germany at my place, via the lovely mother of this boy.
