Creating a good looking dessert from scratch.

How many time have you been to a good restaurant or cafe, ordered a dessert, and when it arrived you went like Wow! that looks good!

Having worked in few good restaurants, cafes and hotels in the past, I will take you through the part that you never see when you place your order as it happens in the kitchen.

So let’s invent something sIMPLE

Lets call that dessert: “the fruity passion yogurt” ( I know I am terrible at giving names for dishes)
Alright, so you order that dish for your breakfast, So in the Kitchen we will hear: “One Fruity Passion Please”

Lets start with the base

1- Put a  good amount of Plain Yogurt in a bowl

for the garnish

Now that you have your base, you can start with adding garnish. Passion fruits always looks good and since you need a sweet element let’s add some honey. I am using  here a delicious Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey.

Sprinkle some of the passion fruit seed and swirl your honey over the fruits:


Time to dress it up

Done! your yogurt dessert has been created. Of course you have to dress it up to give it the wow factor. Simply use half a passion fruit, a few mint leaves and a bit icing sugar and see how the magic happens.

This is the end result you can now serve your Fruity passion Yogurt Dessert.

Some next  time you make a dessert just follow similar steps to achieve great results.
