Technique 2

  1. Wash very well cabbage and dry it. Cut the bottom of the cabbage.

2. Remove leaves to adjust the preferable size of the flower.

3. Cut each leaf towards the bottom. The top of the leaf must be round, so the flower has pretty petals. Start from outside and go around with each leaf same cut.

4. Don’t be afraid to try. I really don’t have curving skills but it every time comes out perfect! If you have any questions about this technique, just ask. However, I suggest don’t do first time this flower before the event to avoid stress.

Important Napa Cabbage Tip

                I need to mention, very seldom but napa cabbage has black spots on it. It absolutely does not effects the taste and cabbage is perfectly edible and safe to eat, as I read from a few sources. However, garnishing food will be not acceptable. If you cook napa often, you may know what I am talking about. My advice is to cut the bottom day in advance before the event, to be sure the cabbage is spotless and nice inside. I did learn my lesson I can say the hard way. I bought absolutely perfect looking Napa cabbage and was ready to make a flower for decoration. After I cut my cabbage, was so disappointed! The center of the cabbage had so many black spots, so it was impossible to cut them out and make a flower. I asked my son to go to the store and buy Chinese cabbage call also napa, I thought it was enough information. He brought me white cabbage instead… What I can say, we learn something new every day. If you ask someone to buy napa cabbage, be specific. For someone cabbage is cabbage.

Make sure, you check on the bottom of the page how used one of this technique my online friends Leny, and Melisa. They shared on social media. It is so pleasant for me to know someone found my content useful!

Napa’s leaves are great to serve as plates for a salad, they wide enough and can make a great pairing with many salads or other dishes. Or we can simply cut the top of a few leaves and make a border for a salad on the plate like on the photo below. It is a very beautiful way to present our dish, in my opinion.
