A charlotte (SHAR-luht) is a classic French molded dessert.
It can be prepare with all kind of fruits or even with chocolate mousse.
I"ll teach you how to prepare the Lady fingers, the fruit mousse/or chocolate mousse and how to place all together.
Not only that, each recipe can be used separately, Lady finger for your kids, a tea time with friends, fruit mousse or chocolate mousse as a light dessert.
Gaetan, my French teacher, told me all his secrets, this is another one.
-Why Charlotte? beginning of the answer, perhaps!
Some say, this dessert was created for Queen Charlotte of England. Those in the Russian camp, however, say it was named after a sister-in-law of Alexander I, who just happened to be named Charlotte. The debate rages on.
