Happy Halloween Guys!
Halloween is upon us and what better way than to be inspired to do something a little differnet than normal?
Halloween calls for fun, costumes and child-like behavior and for that reason I was inspired by a drink we drink in Denmark as kids called saft for this dish and it is basically mostly for kids. Just like Halloween trick or treat.
Saft is like a diluted sugar and fruit syrup that you drink made from red fruits - more in specific blackcurrant.
So it's natural that this dish, the hero ingredient, is of course blackcurrant. I paired it with chestnuts (my new found love) in different textures - as a crumble, as a mousse and as a paste.
The other elements are blackcurrant sorbet (the skull heads), blackcurrant jelly, pickled and mousse. For an extra effect, the sauce making everything look bloody is a blackcurrant and liquorice sauce.
Who wants the recipe and plating tips? :D Comment below if you do!
Here is a close up shot of the dish.
