Zero Waste: Raspberry Cushion by César Troisgros
Why Waste? is back. The Fine Dining Lovers series that shows you how to turn your kitchen food waste into delicious dishes, with recipes and tips by some of the world's best chefs, makes a welcome and timely return.
Almost 50% of the fruit produced in the world gets wasted, so this episode of Why Waste? shows us what we can do with it before it ends up in the garbage. This recipe is by César Troisgros, the fourth generation chef of the legendary Troisgros family.
As a child, César's grandmother used to make this recipe using overripe raspberries, making ice cubes with the fruit, and adding yoghurt and cream. It's a simple yet delicious recipe that reminds him of his childhood. Even at three-Michelin-star Maison Troisgros, they sometimes forget about fruit and have to use it up in some way. This is a simple yet elegant way to use up raspberries (or any other forest fruit) that you can do at home.
