Ruby plated dessert

Chef Ryan Stevenson developed this dessert as closing of a fine dining experience. It surprises with a variety of exciting flavours and textures that pair extremely well with ruby. The recipe combines both indulgent, rewarding and refreshing sensations, yet always with plenty of acidity and fresh sour notes. Simply to create a light and a perfect end to dinner. Feel free to give the components your own twist or combine them in such a way to create your own, unique style.

The preparation of all components takes some time of course – yet once prepared, plating goes fast.
