Creative Plating Techniques With Sorrel


Sorrel, with its sweet intro and tart finish, comes in numerous varieties. Each is amazing with chefs having their own favorites, choosing them because of their flavor, textures, and/or attractive appearances on the plate or in a glass.


Here, Chef Jamie Simpson shares three of his favorite applications of sorrel.


At the Bar: Last Word, Stirred


Amethyst sorrel leaves—crisp and acidic with lemony flavor and slightly sweet undertones—are a real winner in the beverage space. They’re easy to use and easy to love—like they are in this cocktail. Their triangular leaves also catch the eye, thanks to their shape and their hues, which can range from deep purple to magenta, or even near black, with paler centers.


Fine Dining: Ice Cream Dumpling


Picture steamed parsnip ice cream with sorrel powder on green sorrel. Fun fact: when you use dried lucky sorrel in your dishes and drinks, it retains its acidity.


Country Club Dining: Pork Loin With Apple


Sorrel. Apple. Pork loin. Sorrel stem (AKA zesty lemon sticks).
