'sHello Three Georges Fans,
I love cream pies in the summer with cool, creamy filling in graham cracker crust. A few years back at Three Georges we started thinking about our favorite pies. My first thought was chocolate - a pie that actually tasted like chocolate - not like so many I'd bought before. Those pies looked good on the outside and I expected to bite into a mound of chocolate flavor, but they just tasted blah. How disappointing is that?
We set out an array of chocolates to test. What a chore it was to taste them all! Somebody had to do it and it took a lot of chocolate tasting to discover the best one. The result is our Triple Chocolate Mousse Pie. We whip up our fluffy mousse, fill the crust to the top and pipe in creamy whipped topping. Then we sprinkle on curled chocolate shavings.
Over the next 2 weeks we'll be making our fresh chocolate mousse pie in the store and, if you'd like to be a part of the experience, call Three Georges (251.433.6725) and sign up for a free Mousse Making Class, starting on Thursday, July 5, 1 p.m.
All this talk about chocolate mousse makes me remember the first time I made it myself at Easter. It was 1991 and I was dating Siobhan, who's now my wife. I knew she loved chocolate and I knew she was giving it up for Lent. I had no idea how to make chocolate mousse but I asked a friend who was a good cook and followed his directions. I waited until Lent ended on Easter Sunday and then I surprised Siobhan by serving it to her in a wine glass topped with fresh whipped cream. She loved it! Shortly afterward, we became engaged. I'm not sure if my first chocolate mousse creation had anything to do with it, but, maybe.
Who knew that would lead to Three Georges and the summer of 2012 when we're making the best chocolate mousse for you to enjoy. Our store celebrates itwo own special 95th Anniversary this year. All the more reson to see you there.
