On the Chef2Chef forums, someone asked about a recipe for Mont Blanc.
From what I can gather, it is a dessert using chestnut puree' and
whipped cream. One of the websites they referenced in turn claims
that the first appearance of a recipe similar to Mont Blanc appeared
in Giovanni Platina's "Honest Cook." I've looked on the web as best
as I could to find a reference/translation of the recipe, but haven't
been able to find one, yet.
Does anyone on the list have a translation of the recipe I could peruse?
