  1. H, those are beautiful! Is there a glaze on top of the avocado slices? I’m wondering why they don’t brown. When I have leftover avocado (for snacking) I applied lemon juice on them but they turn brown anyway.


    1. thx J, the best we can do is to apply lemon juice, however lemon juice also has tenderizing effects. maximum 4 hours i would say, after that the avocado softens because of the lemon tenderizing effect.

      after you apply lemon juice, you need to airtight it. either with a glaze or with plastic wrap or with a spray of vegetable oil.

      and that’s about it.

      i wished i could have done all the avocado rose work the day ahead, but instead it was done the same day just a few hours prior serving. we had a staff of 4 chefs to work on this and quite fast.
