Strawberry with koji cultured cream // Here's how we do it:  The strawberry is picked at the ripest point..In the morning we only pick the ones that will be overripe by the end of the day due to the sun's heat. 👉🏻 We then place them in dehydrator for a few hours to concentrate the berry and get rid of excess moisture. This step makes the berry much sweeter, but most importantly more acidic. After dehydrating we smoke the berry. It is served warm with koji culture cream and salt, which all play together to make a balanced and delicious taste!  Explore #elementsprinceton | www.elementsprinceton.com

THE MENU
