Palate Cleanser...

Plenty of enlightened lotuses here at Fairchild Tropical Garden...

Traditional French Palate Cleansers

The Basics of Refreshing Your Palate Between Courses

By Rebecca Franklin, Guide

There is not much written instruction on the art of palate cleansing during a sumptuous, multi-course French meal. It has become something of a prized tradition, passed from generation to generation in the local enclaves of France. Each region has a special ingredient, usually a locally produced product that the locals swear by.



  1. I should probably mention how many times I've stopped by to have my palate cleansed since you were awesome enough to post this... :)

    Enlightened lotuses (with a little side order of cheerful citrus)? Priceless.

  2. Just trying to freshen my palate after taking a bite out of the Florida legislature. Glad you enjoyed it!
