Yogurt On The Menu

I love yogurt in desserts and I almost always have it in some form or another on the menu.  And this is what we're currently serving for dinner at the restaurant.

A dome of yogurt mousse, embedded with a hidden disk of angel food cake and sprayed with white chocolate, rests on a crispy sheet of coconut meringue.  Flake-like shards of coconut ice, my preferred form of granité these days, keep the mousse company.  A starkly white dessert arrives at the table, but quickly gets bloodied by a spooning of warm and winey redcurrant compote.  Visual, textural, and temperature contrasts collide in this one dish.  And I think it tastes pretty good too.
