Here we are, bravely marching in the second half of November, where we’re finding the right place for our beloved rose flavour once again. While waiting for the Christmas mood to step in, we are cheering up the season with the jolly news that our limited edition ‘Rose and cardamom’ winter confiture is available again this year.
It’s not by chance that, on the borderline between late autumn and early winter, we are serving on a plate the rose flower note, combined with typical for the season spices and products. We are here to show you once more that, with the right knowledge, the floral accent of the rose in food has the quality to gently adapt itself with amazingly rich palette of flavours and ingredients, through all seasons. Well, sharing this knowledge is a genuine mission for us. If only you dare to plunge in this delight…
