"Today I present a great no waste food recipe. Fruit and veggie skins often get discarded in the food prepping process, but did you know that those peels are packed with nutrients and also many strong flavours? I made white asparagus with fennel salad yesterday but there were many skins and stems left. So, I decided to make a white asparagus panna cotta, using these leftovers. It’s a very simple recipe with so many different flavours. This time I presented it in a gorgeous traditional Japanese vintage cup from Maison Sato. I hope you enjoy it." -Chef Masayoshi Haraguchi.
