CANDIED LEMON STRIPS, AMIFRUIT
(FC14) 1 KG
In the early spring local fresh fruit is, if not scarce, then barely flavorful. Not so of the noble lemon. Why try and highlight anemic strawberries when you can offer a lemon tart garnished with candied lemon for good measure. You might serve them as a mignardise after dinner dipped in white or dark chocolate.
RASPBERRY PUREE, RAVIFRUIT
(FPR951) 5 KG
Not to beat a dead horse but at this time of year frozen raspberries harvested in summer are a tastier bet by far than fresh ones. What they lack is the texture of whole fresh fruit. Consider using a summer harvest frozen puree for flavor and fresh berries for eye candy.
VANILLA BEAN PASTE ORGANIC, NOROHY
(VAN025) 500 GRAM
Norohy Vanilla Paste is made exclusively with organic beans grown on the same estate that provides vanilla for Valrhona Chocolate. This paste has no gum thickeners and has well more than double the vanilla concentration of other similar pastes. So while it costs more per oz. the dosage is only a fraction of what is needed from the others, making it fully price competitive as well.
