Chocolate Mousse
The trick is not to over mix the eggs and cream so that the mixture is not too thick/stiff and set.  The chocolate needs to be warm so that it blends well with the eggs otherwise the chocolate starts to set and harden.  Always melt chocolate on a bain marie, gently, more controlled so the steam melts the chocolate. You can use a small pot of water on a stove/cooker don’t let the water touch the bowl that the chocolate is in. let chocolate melt without stirring.  Use a pipping bag if you have one and pipe in the mousse for the glass, and tap tap tap the glass on a cloth, not a hard surface as the glass could smash.  Let each layer set.  To be exact weigh out each portion equally.  Chocolate mousse to be creamy and soft, add something crunchy, a tuile, biscuit, sponge, chocolate layer.

  • A flawless fusion of flavors from the orient (fishcake and aromatic duck) with old school classics (gourmet burger and Guinness and beef stew). Super delicious and impeccable service. What's not to love? Will definitely return.

  • I ran a pub quiz in Murphy's last week and it was the perfect venue! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and even provided complimentary finger food on the night, a sound system and mic for the quizmaster and enabled us to display the scores on the TV screen! There was plenty of room for tons of participants, but it's nicely laid out so that no matter what number you have it would still feel full and cosy! Drinks were lovely too! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to do a fundraiser!
