White chocolate mousseline and pistachio financier

White chocolate is a wonderful tastemaker for spring and summer desserts. In this recipe, our chefs created a light and flavoursome mousse. They combined it with a pistachio financier for the lovely bite and dense texture. You can add fruits like banana or apricot to complete the flavour sensation.
