Garnishing Food with Flower from Butter

How to make a flower from butter I learned from a chef at Russia many years ago. We can make flowers in advance and use when you need it. If flowers come out how you like at first, just remember, “Practice is the best teacher.”

How do I use in my kitchen? On side dishes, on liver pate, on stakes, on toast, baked potato (looks great on sweet potato, because of contrast) whatever you use butter.

We can decorate caviar sandwiches, tiny flowers look great on pink and black caviar. We can leave a few pearls of pink caviar and freeze it for the future garnish. So, when time to serve fish you can decorate the center of your flower with pink caviar. Like example, butter and mashed potato almost same color, so flower much better looks with the pink center and caviar match seafood dishes perfectly (of course, if you eat caviar).
