Seasonal plum main course by József Bernáth

There are thousands of different types of plums, which differ in color, size, shape and content. However, they have in common that they are very healthy and worth consuming regularly. Chef József Bernáth, the gastronomic ambassador of the European Fresh Team, drew attention to two things with his special plum main dish. One is how plums can be used in many different ways – even as a main dish – and the other is that it is worth using different types of plums in different ways in the kitchen.
She made plum-braised turkey with mint bulgur salad and plum chutney, using two types of plums. Toptaste is one of the most popular types of plums, the special feature of which is that, in addition to its sweetness, it is also sufficiently acidic, which is why it goes well with meat or in cakes. József Bernáth incorporated it into his main dish: he steamed this softer, yellowish meat, succulent-tasting variety together with the turkey meat. The raw material for the chutney was provided by another, slightly sourer, harder-fleshed variety, the Stanley. At the workshop, the chef also presented a classic plum dessert, which he spiced up with an imaginative presentation, especially for the children. – Children generally prefer pancakes with hazelnut cream or apricot jam. However, if we sneak a pinch of cinnamon into the plum jam and bring a little playfulness to the serving, we can easily make them fall in love with this version as well. József Bernáth said.
