Prepare Ahead

These mousses can be made up to 2 days in advance, then covered and chilled.


  1. 1

    Preheat the grill on its highest setting and lightly oil the ramekins.

  2. 2

    Place the peppers on a grill rack and grill for 4–5 minutes, or until the skins are blackened, turning once or twice. Place in a plastic bag and leave until cool enough to handle, then remove from them from bag and peel off the skins. Slice the peppers into strips, place in a bowl, and add the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and basil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and leave to marinate for 1 hour.

  3. 3

    Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Place the eggs, cream, goat’s cheese, Parmesan, and nutmeg in a food processor, season to taste with salt and pepper, and process until well combined. Pour into the ramekins.

  4. 4

    Place the ramekins in a roasting tin and pour in boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake, uncovered, for 30–40 minutes, or until set, then remove from the tin. Leave to cool, then chill for several hours.

  5. 5

    To serve, run a blunt knife around each ramekin and turn the mousses out on to individual serving plates. Divide the peppers between the plates and drizzle with the dressing.
