Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Serendipity Sundays - A Rose is a Rose or Is It?

Serendipity Sundays - A Rose is a Rose or Is It?

Serendipity Sundays - A Rose is a Rose or Is It?

We had a nice dinner this weekend at one of our local restaurants that offers a quiet setting and many assorted dishes and cuisines. My husband had a juicy steak and I had Asian chicken and mushrooms with fried rice.

When my dinner arrived my plate was adorned with a beautiful rose. It was about 3 inches in diameter and at least 2 inches tall. It rested on a small bed of shredded lettuce. This was a delicate little salad and raised questions as to what the rose made from.  I asked our server and now I know. Can you figure it out?

 

A rose is a rose or is it?

Serendipity Sundays- A Rose is a Rose, or Is It?

 

(The answer: It is made from an Asian raddish and colored.)

Is it a shaved carrot?

What a beautiful presentation Debbie-and hopefully the dinner was as delicious as it looks

Debbie,

 You have to tell us what it it, I think Lynnea is a good guess!

Posted by Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert almost 2 years ago

Debbie I don't know what the rose was made out of, but who ever made it did an excellent job.

Debbie Reynolds - what a beautiful and artistic addition to your meal. Hopefully you enjoyed the meal as much as the artwork!

I didn't have a clue, but it is a beautiful presentation! Thanks for giving us the answer!

Aloha Debbie, it looks like dyed Daikon Raddish!

Debbie- how creative is that.  I'd never have guessed the answer but I'm glad you asked.

Debbie, a very beautiful and edible rose!

Some people have a talent of making food look much different

Hi Lynnea Miller, It is a shaved and curled huge radish. They told me they tinted it too.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

I kept seeing these blossoms go by on plates and thought how pretty, then I got one, Joanna Cohlan.

It is a radish and the owner carefully crafts it, Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert 

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

It looked so real and I had to turn it over and see how it was made, George Souto.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

I did not eat the rose becasue I was full but now wish I had tried it, Susan Laxson CRS.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

Oh Kimo Stowell I do believe you have it right. They said they colored it.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

Thanks Evelyn Johnston for stopping by and seeing my rose.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

Thanks Kathy Streib for stopping by and learning more about my rose.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

It is quite a talent, William Feela. My mom could make interesting shapes out of vegetables. She was so creative.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

It was secure underneath with a toothpick. I should have taken on petal off and tried it, Rebecca Gaujot, the Go To Realtor®.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

I was going to guess a beet, but Asian radish makes more sense. How delightful!

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Serving San Francisco and the Silicon Valley (Pacific Union International) almost 2 years ago

That was my guess, Lottie Kendall becasue of the color. The server said the radish was the size of a volleyball.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

I can't believe you didn't taste it. I would have. Now you'll have to go back again! LOL!

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Agent (HomeSmart Realty Group) almost 2 years ago

That looks good enough to eat. Some people are so talented Debbie Reynolds

Debbie Reynolds - There are some beautiful radishes that when they are peeled and placed correctly  make a beautiful rose!  I hope you enjoyed the dish!

Good morning Debbie.  I would not have guessed it was a radish.  Very nice display and delivery of this dish.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) almost 2 years ago

Good morning Debbie Reynolds ,

How delightful! Its a lovely look and now you know what it is made of! Very creative and the dish looks scrumptious!

I love the photo. I will try to do the same with radishes. I know it will not be as beautiful.

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) almost 2 years ago

Thanks, Debbie, for sharing this creative plate decoration.

Have an outstanding week.

Hi Debbie - We have a local chinese restaurant that does the same thing, so I knew the answer. The first time I saw it, I was afraid it was beets : (

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) almost 2 years ago

How beautiful. I never would have guessed it was a radish. I was thinking it might be a beet because of the color. 

Posted by Debbie Laity, Your Real Estate Resource for Delta County, CO (Cedaredge Land Company) almost 2 years ago

Hello Debbie

Catchy title and when I first viewed the photo it look like a potatoe or vegetable that was dyed red

Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz, Las Vegas Henderson Homes for Sale (Realty ONE Group) almost 2 years ago

Oh yes, A potato could be used for something like this, Robert Vegas Bob Swetz.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 2 years ago

Oh, that is SO cool!  I wouldn't have tried it either - it's best in pictures!  LOL

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) almost 2 years ago

It looks like a piece of art so I would have a hard time eating it but in the end, I bet it would be tasty.
