Introduction to Cress a.k.a Microgreens
Back then, I used to purchased pre-packed microgreens from Cold Storage at Great World City. There wasn't much of a choice as it was premixed and not the freshest one could get their hands on. When I did the Monniker event back in May 2017, I was introduced by my best cooking buddy, Felix, to Edmund, the founder of Farm Delight. His cresses are simply amazing! All carefully grown on organic soil, under specific lighting conditions, humidity and temperature. His cresses are sold mainly to Michelin Stars and fine dining restaurants in Singapore. I got my cresses from him on a weekly basis. Apart from how fresh and tasty these cresses are, they are extremely nutritious as well! Each and every cress are unique and have their own specialty taste. Many friends have asked where and how I got my cresses, and after all the pleading, Edmund has finally decided to sell them to the public!
Also, apart from these cresses, there are other herbs and plants such as rosemary, thyme etc. For the time being, these freshly grown cresses are great for private chefs and homecooks enthusiasts!
Depending on the response from the public, there will be further plans to expand the varieties, and collection points! I'll be sharing some of the cresses. So for those who are keen, you have an idea on how and what they are!
