ALL OUT DESSERT ASSAULT. Need suggestions for palate cleansers.
I'm catering an event and it's pretty much ALL DESSERT.
I don't want peoples palates to get burnt out.
What are some ideas of a palate cleansing feature that we could serve as a reprieve from all the sugar?
ON THE MENU:
Ice Cream, Donuts, Chocolate, Pastries, Macarons, Milkshake.
Some ideas I've had so far:
-Cheese plate (Though that might be too rich. Something light and refreshing might be more what's called for here)
-Palate cleansing chinese tea (could do some palate cleansing agar agar jells?)
-Just some simple fruits
I love the high pressured gas infusion stuff.
I'm thinking about doing some agar or gelatin gels as palate cleansers. Some flavour ideas:
-celery & salt
-tart green apple
-wild chamomile & peach
-parsley & lime
-spicy ginger (made with cayenne for kick)
I have only experimented with agar 3 times doing a simple kanten jelly. Does anyone know of sources of information that might have a technique/guide/recipe for making these kind of jellies?
Ice Cream, Donuts, Chocolate, Pastries, Macarons, Milkshake
I see no point in palate cleansing between these dishes. Serve some water and coffee/tea.
