Having first worked with Nurtured in Norfolk’s products in London, it was an education in different herbs and the different flavours they have. Every time we got a new product in, it was exciting and it gets your chefs brain working on new ideas and new flavour combinations. Getting a new punnet of micro cress on the larder section, is the equivalent of getting a fantastic fillet steak sauce! The right micro cress or leaf can elevate a good dish to a great dish, not only in presentation but also in flavour. The quality and flavour from Nurtured in Norfolkis always consistent, with the herbs having a good shelf life, which is vital when working in a busy restaurant. At Le Benaix we make full use of this, with the flavours and presentation of our dishes complemented by the wonderful products of Nurtured in Norfolk.
