A pre dessert need not be complicated. In fact, I believe it shouldn't. A little something chilled and crisply flavored is all you need to refresh the palate and prepare the diner for the sweeter portion of a meal. Cucumber, strawberry and greek yogurt create the profile here, all in frozen form. A glass plate pulled from the freezer almost mimics a decorative piece of ice. By dragging a warm spoon across the top of a sorbet or ice cream, one can create a coil effect. In this case, the red strawberry sorbet resembles an abstract rose. The frost bitten look of crystallized micro anise hyssop leaves fit right at home on the plate. Don't you feel refreshed already?!
