Dear Uncle,

I love your website of course, and youíve helped me before. I check into it weekly 
and so enjoy reading the site. Thank you.

I am searching for a particular chocolate bombe recipe. I checked your pages, but 
I could not find the one I wanted. Itís VERY chocolatey, and I got it years ago 
from a paperback Julia Child cookbook. (I think the cover was primarily red.) 
There was a three chocolate bombe, but the name of the recipe was in Frenchó
something like Bombe au Trois Chocolat. The center of the dessert was a chocolate 
mousse. The mousse was covered with a brownie layer. (I think J. Child gave credit 
to a 12-year-old girl for developing that part of the recipe.) The concoction was 
covered in a melted chocolate of some sort. Iíve lost my copy of the recipe, but 
would very much like to make it for a chocolatophile friend. 
Can you help me once again?

I hope youíre having a lovely June.
