“Your vegetables are crunchy!”
This time – the customer was right. He seemed to prefer the deep frozen convenience vegetables which are much easier on the kitchen, as no peeling, trimming, cutting or dicing is required. The cooked result though is rather tasteless and squashy – yet possibly easier on the teeth!
We stick to the garden fresh version; albeit much more work but really tasty and – yes – crunchy and healthier. This preparation, called “mise en place” is what the kitchen team does between 2.30pm and when we open at 5 pm; daily except Tuesdays.
