Monet's Palate...Week-end

I know...I haven't blogged much lately :( I was very sick with the flu then had to get caught up with school and work. But, I saved this for you my blogger friends. Monet's Palate.

Monet's Palate is a documentary which examines the connection between fine art and fine cuisine as seen through the eyes of Claude Monet. Meryl Streep's opening narration takes the viewer through the region of Normandy in France and Monet's Home and Gardens. The greatest Chefs of the world including Alice Waters, Daniel Boulud, Roger Verge, Anne Willan and Michel Richard, prepare the cuisine Claude Monet adored. Interviews include Steve Wynn and Joachim Pissarro.

2 lbs. strawberries
2 c. whipping cream
Kirsch (cherry liqueur)
4 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Set aside a few whole strawberries as garnish for mousse.

Blend strawberries to pulp; add about 2 tablespoons lemon juice; add kirsch to taste; add approximately 3 to 4 tablespoons sugar; add more kirsch if necessary. (Vary this mixture to your own taste.) Set aside.

Whip cream until stiff. Set aside a small amount of strawberry mixture for garnish. Fold strawberry mixture into whipped cream. Chill.

Spoon into dessert dishes. Pour a little of the set aside strawberry mixture on top of each dish and garnish with a strawberry. Serves 8 to 10.

(You can vary liqueur, sugar and lemon juice to taste, measurements are approximately.) This mousse tastes like light strawberry clouds.
