RECIPE: Lemon mousse

I’ve made a lot of hot puddings recently, but since we’re in ‘summer’ (or what passes for it in England) I thought I’d do something cold for a change. I thought of lemon mousse as we both like lemon and it’s a bit more refreshing than chocolate – but strangely enough when I had a…

RECIPE: Lemon tofu ‘cheesecake’
