Ingredients

5 egg yolks

1/2 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup sugar

4 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest

Pinch salt

1/4 cup plus 2 2/3 cup 35-percent whipping cream

One 3.5-ounce bar white chocolate, finely chopped

4 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced

Directions

  1. Whisk the egg yolks, lemon juice, sugar, lemon zest and salt in a medium bowl and mix together well. Place over a pot of simmering water and whisk until the yolks are very thick, about 6 minutes. Cool. 
  2. Combine 1/4 cup whipping cream and the white chocolate in a mixing bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Beat the remaining 2 2/3 cup whipping cream until firm peaks form. Divide the whipped cream between the lemon and white chocolate mousse bases, folding in 1 cup at a time. 
  4. Layer the lemon mousse in 6 parfait glasses. Top with 2 tablespoons strawberries. Then layer the white chocolate mousse over the strawberries. Repeat the layering 2 more times.
