Today is brought to you by the letter "G"!
(Disclaimer: Although this is typically a blog about my beadwork, I do let other parts of my life seep into this blog. Food and beverage is a huge part of my life as I am the marketing director of a fantastic restaurant group!)
G is for garlic and also for garnish!
G is also for garnish. Last year I was blown away at how thoroughly the chefs used each plant, including the scape of the garlic. Here the chef is explaining to some students how to use the entire garlic plant:
I saw them using it for cooking but also for garnish! Here is a garlic scape on an hors d'oeuvres platter along with some flowers!
And speaking of garnish....in addition to the produce that is grown on my company's farm, we also have tons and tons of flowers to use as garnish! You will often see our chef, just before opening, outside at our flower boxes picking flowers for the evenings service!
I probably have hundreds of photos highlighting how we use flowers on our plates for garnish but I'll leave you with one of my favorite ways I saw our chefs use the flowers for garnish...and that was with a shrimp cocktail we had on the menu, where our chef froze edible flowers into little ice disk! How cute is that!?!?!
Come back tomorrow to see what we have in store for the letter "H"!
