Mild Chile Threads
Used in kimchi or as a garnish these wisps of thinly sliced chile pepper offer towering structure, grassy flavors, and chic style to a dish. Perfect for topping curries, stews, homemade sushi, or even topping a cake enveloped with ganache.
Chile threads are used as a garnish, but can definitely be eaten. Raw they have a grassy flavor, but a quick toasting gives them a smoky dimension and darkens the color. The heat is rather mild.
A few silvers as garnish offers a modern, geometric appearance making a dish more chic. Use a generous handful to offer height and drama – a brilliant nest that takes a dish over the top.
