Candy Striped Figs, Watermelon Radish, Bacon Powder, Smoked Proscuitto, Pistachio Oil
One of our vendors sent out a upcoming special on candy striped figs and we immediately put our order in for Monday delivery. These Californian figs were drizzled with of course fig vinegar and pistachio oil. The vibrant watermelon radish was placed over a bacon powder (bacon fat + tapioca maltodextrin). A local micro herb blend mixed with some arugula leaves top the thinly shaved speck. Speck is a type of prosciutto spiced with juniper. It is boned out and smoked before hanging giving it a truly unique flavor profile. Some Parisian gnocchi croutons gave a fun Parmesan component.
