Rose Dusting Powder

Rose Dusting Powder is a vibrant purple dust that can be used in drinks, dishes and desserts. It has a light Rose flavour, mild with sweet undertones, which is why it works best with desserts and drinks. However, it can be also used in main dishes. Use this dust to make a Rose Harissa paste, then pair with fish or chicken. Rose dust works very well with hot and spicy dishes, due to the sweet undertones of the Rose balancing out the heat from the chillis. For cocktails and drinks, dip the rim of your glass in a spirit or liquid of your choice, then dip into the dust to create a rim of colour around your cocktails.
