The tempura Broccoli salad idea came to me one day when my head chef was teaching me ways to make “the perfect batter” I made batter again and again and again and each time it got better. From using less of one ingredient or putting more of an ingredient or adding another ingredient each time I was more happy with the last , when I make pre dinner snacks I like to be creative as I can be. From making an amuse with muscles in a scallop shell being smoked from torching pine needles in a bowl under the shell to a smoked bacon, mozzarella and sweet corn samosa with tomato chili relish served on the side as a dip I make pre dinner snacks as creative as I can . One day I had an idea of trying broccoli with my batter and it tasted amazing , it was healthy , vegan and vegetarian friendly and i was really happy with how it turned out to me it had a really nice texture . But that wasn’t all I wanted to go with it I dressed a salad with wild heard pesto , freshly foraged leaves , pickled carrot and beetroot and I was really happy with the result. Everyday I’m learning and tomorrow I’ll learn more about food then I knew today but my inspiration for my tempura broccoli salad cake from a snack I created trying to make “that perfect batter” with a perfectly prepared and cooked vegetable
