Joanne Chang's Lemon-Ginger Mousse Coupe

[Photograph: Liz Bomze]

This gingery, citrusy mousse is served at Meyers and Chang in Boston. Unlike most lemon desserts, the sugar doesn't beat out the citrus; in fact, it is ever so slightly bitter, as if some of the fruit's pith has snuck in. The ginger is hot and fresh, a great match against all those eggs and cream.
