Prepare your taste buds for an extraordinary culinary experience as Folly presents a delectable masterpiece crafted by Head Chef Bojan Cirjanic, showcasing the finest ingredients and culinary techniques.
Step into our kitchen and behold the captivating sight of live, fresh crabs perched upon the countertop, eagerly awaiting their transformation into a culinary delight. Embracing the pursuit of exceptional quality, flavor, and freshness, Folly has embarked on the labor-intensive task of personally cooking and extracting succulent meat from the shells.
Meticulously selecting only the best, flaky leg meat for their dish, Chef Bojan utilizes the brown crab head to create a tantalizing crab-infused mayonnaise emulsion that imbues the crab with an additional layer of depth and savory richness.
To enhance this remarkable creation, Folly’s team has sourced the exquisite Pusa Gulabi variety of white and pink radishes from the esteemed Greenheart Organic Farm. These vibrant radishes, meticulously cultivated using organic practices, serve as an exquisite garnish, adding both visual appeal and a delightful crispness to the dish.
In addition to the radish, we have prepared a refreshing cucumber gel and a tantalizing cucumber vinaigrette, complementing the flavors of the dish. To achieve the perfect balance of freshness and raw essence, we employ agar agar as a setting agent to attain the pristine green hue of the cucumber juice. For an extra touch of aromatic allure, a portion of the cucumber juice is infused with fragrant kaffir lime leaves and galangal, heightening the dish to an extraordinary level of sensory delight.
