Burch & Purchese Dishes - 12 Coconut, Ginger, Passionfruit & Mint

On the face of it this dish seems pretty simple, in fact it packs great flavour using four highly individual ingredients which give a stunning result when used together. At the base of he bowl is a silky smooth and sharp passion curd, on top of that freshly baked warm ginger biscuits are added along with strips of our homemade crystallized ginger. The biscuit and ginger add a crunchy texture and also a temperature change. A fragrant Heilala vanilla and coconut sago is next up and this is topped with a light mousse like coconut foam. The coconut really evens out all of the flavours in this dish and makes it work so well. Finally an intense mint granite is added for another texture and temperature dimension. This dish is, in our opinion, absolutely delicious and hits all of the right buttons in a dessert.
