Ka’ana Kitchen at Andaz Maui
Three ingredients! Chef Ashley Nakano may call it a mousse, but I think it’s even more decadent sans egg yolks. A one-to-one ratio of chocolate and cream make this a dessert lover’s dream. Add a little whipped cream to lighten it and VOILA! Ka’ana Kitchen’s scoop of chocolatey bliss will have you rolling your eyes up toward the heavens. Rich and dense served right out of the refrigerator, the mousse softens as it reaches room temperature. But, it may not have that chance because you’ll want to devour it on the spot. Juxtaposing textures, it’s served with house-made crunchy fried taro and sweet potato chips. Wondering about the combination? Wonder no more, as Chef Ashley’s pairing will have you scooping the last schmear of mousse off the plate in record time. 3350 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, 573-1234.
