hours, or until well chilled.

Carefully separate the mousse from the pan using a thin knife or flexible
spatula. Invert onto a serving platter and remove the pan. Press the
remaining walnuts into any bare spots. Let the loaf set at room temperature
for 1/2 hour before serving.

Note: the mousse can be prepared up to 1 month in advance, covered airtight
and frozen. Let thaw, covered, for 24 hours in refrigerator.
