Tulips are Edible, The Cliff

I had the privilege to attend a food tasting at The Cliff at the Singapore Resort and Spa Sentosa last week. Visiting Michelin-star Chef Pascal Aussignac introduced a French menu with a tinge of English influence. It was a great gourmet experience, especially when it was shared with wonderful company.

Though Chef Pascal has left Singapore by now, there are another 2 Michelin-star chefs coming to The Cliff in June and July 2014. Read more about it in SuperAdrianMe.com

One of the more interesting dishes that evening was a stuffed tulip. Yes, a tulip flower. Chef Pascal explained that tulips are actually edible. You steam them. He advises to choose tulips that are not so colourful because after you steam the tulip, the colour in the vibrantly coloured ones tend to be less appealing. Ironic huh… but a good tip. You can stuff anything in its petal but of course, cook it first. It’s a dish that would wow your dinner guests! Off to the flower shop… or just visit Gardens by the Bay.
