Piemont – Pistachio Mousse Cake


This new trial is from a Japanese baker whose recipes were translated in Chinese.  The photos are fabulous.  The one catches my almost attention is a cake called Piemont made of pistachio, one of my favourite nuts.   Piemont is a province in Italy which is famous for its wine and food.  It is a place where a friend and an ex-colleague are from. 

The base is chocolate cake made with egg white, ground almond, cake flour, cocoa, dashed with walnut (originally hazelnut) and pistachio,  Then layered with pistachio mousse, chocolate cake with Kirsch wine, pistachio mousse and finally pistachio wrapped in syrup.  The mousse, according to the recipe, is made up of loads of sugar cooked in syrup.  I cut a lot.  It then did not get solid nicely.  I will recommend adding gelatin.
