We've all seen microcress on savoury dishes with common favourites like peashoots etc, but does anybody know of any that are sweet and readily available to compliment to a dessert?
I know one of my accounts uses micro mint sprigs to garnish some of the desserts they buy from us; I think there are several varieties of micro greens you could get from a wholesaler; you could also use candied flowers or rose petals - but candied flowers are expensive to buy and time-consuming to make and store.
I use chocolate mint.
Looks like mint leaves, but when you bite the leaf , its a cross between chocolate and mint. Great for plating.
On another note (for those who may not realize) , there are many plants that pair nicely in a dessert.
