Arethusa Blue Cheese Mousse

Recipe contributed by Chef Dan Magill
This is something we typically serve our guests at the beginning of the meal as an amuse-bouche. At our restaurant we serve it in mini cones along with quince or fig butter depending on the season, but it is just as delicious spread on crackers or as a dip for crudités.
