Marko Karelse, chef and owner of Villa La Ruche in Voorburg, has been using less salt as a seasoning for years. He himself indicates that this has brought the level of his dishes and flavors to a higher level. How does he do that? He mainly cooks with seasonal products and looks for pure ingredients to flavor his dishes. For example, he uses cresses. Not only as a garnish, but especially to add flavor to his dishes. Curious about this delicious recipe with less salt?
