Taste and usage
The Rucola Cress delivered by Koppert Cress has an extremely strong taste.
It is amazing how much flavour there is in such a small leaf. 
The taste reminds of nuts.
The extra fine leaves from the RucolaCress make it suitable for decorating items with a blunt taste,
but it also works well in a salad and in a mashed potato.
In case it is cooked, e.g. in a pasta sauce with some ham, cheese, cream and shallots, we recommend
that the RucolaCress be added at the last moment.
It can then be tossed on the plate on top of the sauce.
Also try a nice roll of bread with some cottage cheese, topped with 1/5 of a cup of Rucolacress.
Rucola is one of those typical Mediterranean ingredients known from the Italian, Greek, Portuguese and
Spanish kitchen.
But don't forget the Middle East, Egypt and the rest of Northern Africa.
Today it is considered a global vegetable. The outspoken taste is very decisive for the dish.
It can be cooked or eaten raw.
In our case with the small size of the leaves, we recommend to use them raw.
