Cucumber flavoured leaves

Koppert Cress launches Cuzco Leaves

Koppert Cress presents Cuzco Leaves, a cucumber-flavored leaf. According to the company, when used raw, it is a visually appealing ingredient. The stem can have too strong a taste, so only (parts of) the leaves can be used.

The leaf can be used in cocktails, with fatty fish, tuna tartare, steak tartare and dishes with vegetables. It is also good combined with avocado, citrus, fermented vegetables, smoked and dried dishes. In combination with fatty ingredients, the taste will be more nutty.
