Golossary: Monte Bianco

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The forefather for the French Mont Blanc, the Monte Bianco is a mountain of sweet chestnut puree and whipped cream, named after the alpine peak. The chestnuts have a subtle creamy sweetness which is complemented by the whipped cream. It is usually garnished with a candied chestnut. Variations range from piles of spaghetti looking puree topped with a bit of cream, to elegant confections of snow covered mountains cloaked entirely in whipped cream.
