The New Sweets are Savoury

Sweet seems to have been done to death over the last few years; so those in the know have decided to replace it with sweets that are savoury. Things like horseradish or olive oil ice-cream, butternut sorbet and other tastebud confusing delights are making an appearance as desserts on restaurant menu around the glob.

We’ve tried this trend and, while it messes with your mind a bit, it’s pretty damn cool. Your eyes expect the dish to taste like one thing – because it looks like ice cream, obviously – and your palate experiences something completely different. Welcome to food’s version of The Outer Limits.
