While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

If you give a moose some mousse, he is bound to want a spoon - November 30 is National Mousse Day!

Mousse is a French word that literally means "froth" or "foam," in reference to the dish's light, airy texture. The key to its pillowy disposition is folding in beaten egg whites or whipped cream.

Satisfy your craving with fresh lemon mousse. If you're hankering for something a bit more savory, whip up blue cheese mousse, or even chicken mousse.

Or, for the more experimental home cooks, try making 5-minute chocolate mousse from French chemist and food scientist Hervé This by melting chocolate in water and whisking it until thickened. Science!
