Julienne Bruno's olive oil chocolate mousse

Julienne Bruno's olive oil chocolate mousse

It's a pairing we keep coming back for, again and again. It's creamy, indulgent, nuanced, and yet it can be made surprisingly easy.

And combine one of our top-notch extra virgin olive oils with this with the plant-based Crematta® from the chef legends over at Julienne Bruno, and you've got a dairy-free winner whipped up in minutes.

They've been testing different styles in their kitchen this month, but this strawberries, EVOO, and nuts one will definitely have you falling in love...

Here's the method:

Serves two. Takes 10 minutes to make and 2 hours to set.

  • Mix all the ingredients for the mousse together.
  • Add more cacao powder or Crematta® to your taste.
  • Put in small ramequins and leave to set in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Serve with a quenelle (20 grams) of Crematta® on top, a spoonful of Citizens of Soil Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and dress with chopped strawberries and a sprinkle of nuts.

Ways to make it your own:

  • Try different different seasonal toppings, like orange and walnuts in the winter, or fresh mint and strawberries in the summer.
  • For a more complex, bitter note—use our Croatian oil. For something smooth, go for our Greek. With red fruits or chiles, our Spanish oil will shine here.

Meet Francesca: our new Sicilian olive oil producer

Born between the mountains and sea, this extra virgin olive oil is telling the story of rural Sicilian identity.  We were always going to have an olive oil from Sicily. Sicily and the southern part of Italy has the bulk of the Italy's olive cultivars, and the diversity of flavours across the island is striking. You also have the iconic Nocellara olives—those big, buttery olives give off real "cool natural wine bar" vibes. But even in one of the biggest olive oil regions in the world, finding ...

This is Sparta: Introducing our EVOO from Greece

It’s a whole new place, but still in one of our favourite regions. The Peloponnese is a magical peninsula, encapsulating both ancient Greece and the modern era—which feels fitting for this oil. Old traditions and family legacies have mixed with high-tech precision to deliver thoughtful quality, all centred around a community making its comeback.  I lost a lot of sleep about the state of Greek oil this year.
