The size and shape of an ingredient not only affects how it delivers flavor but how that flavor is perceived. It's the difference between a tea sandwich and a triple decker.The shape of something from a cubic square to a thin slice to an abstract broken piece changes the way you react to it when it is consumed. It is often the lack of uniformity which adds an element of note or stimulates the flavor of a dish. When everything is precise we become comfortably numb. When an ingredient is shaped in an unexpected way, that difference is important. The rough edges and contoured lines allow for seasoning to cling and each bite to express the flavors in a slightly different configuration. We seasoned our Asian pear-apple with salt and lime juice. We then dressed it with lime zest and peeled, diced jalapeno. The fruit is crispy and refreshing and the texture holds onto the aromatic elements so that they are delivered randomly, which in turn elevates the entire experience.
