The Chefs’ Forum Sponsor Koppert Cress Introduces Lupine Cress
The first introduction of 2018: Lupine Cress. The Lupine Cress is a cress that combines perfectly with other ingredients. With its good bite, it makes a good addition to both hot and cold dishes. The Lupine Cress has a long shelf life, is easy to use, is an excellent substitute for vegetables in side dishes, and makes a great garnish for vegetarian dishes. The Lupine Cress also matches very well with light, easily digestible fish and white meat dishes.
The Lupine Cress originates from the Mediterranean region. It was primarily found on the Iberian peninsula and in Greece, but historically its name has also been mentioned in Italy. The coarse seeds were used as play money in the Roman era.
