My first experience cooking as a chef for Retreats was in Bali at Rooted Lifestyle (Myrthe), where I was inspired by the tropical fruits, herbs and spices and created this beautiful looking and tasteful breakfast. Ever since it’s a signature dish at Retreats, which is received with great feedback. Finally here the complete recipe in dutch and english (see next post)
It’s fun to make it in a glass, with all the layers, but a little bit of work. Keep in mind that you can always use the recipes seperately and finish it off with any other toppings that you have at hand. So it doesn’t have to be this combination. Use these as guideline, and then continue with your own creativity. You can do it! Looking forward to see your version on instagram.
