Rose extract has a lingering, fine and very rich, slightly bitter flavour. A note of rum can be perceived at the background of the tasting and it releases a green, fresh, fruity fragrance (with a touch of litchi), and a straw fragrance too. The taste of the natural rose extract is spicy, winey with a touch of honey.In cooking, it is used to flavour oriental pastry made with honey and dry fruit (Turkish delights, gazelle horns), and also regular shortbread, marzipan, caramel (nougatine). In dairy mixes (Fromage frais mousse, yoghourt). To enhance the flavour of certain fruits such as litchi (sorbet, cocktail, fruit salad). It combines perfectly with pepper, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, artichoke (in creamy sauces, in purées) and asparagus.
