Turku Menu 2019 - Kaskis: Yoghurt and rowanberry sherbet



For 20
Difficulty: Difficult
Time required: Several hours

Ville Kinnunen and Joonas Kallio from Kaskis, which was in third place in the Turku Menu 2019 competition, prepared a dessert of yoghurt and rowanberry sherbet with white chocolate namelaka, white chocolate crystals, and rowanberry and cream cheese creme.

PLEASE NOTE! The recipe was made by top-level chefs for restaurant conditions. It is extremely demanding, some ingredients are difficult to acquire, seasoning has been left to the sense of taste, and many ingredients are marked in grams in order to achieve perfect accuracy. In addition, the recipe may include too much of some components compared to what is necessary for a portion, because in a restaurant kitchen the components do not need to be used at the same pace. However, the recipe provides an interesting view of the operating principles of a restaurant kitchen, and the most enterprising readers can try to prepare a top-level restaurant dish at home.
