Fresh As

By Eric Ripert

This company, based in Auckland, New Zealand, offers a vast array of freeze-dried fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. The flavors are concentrated and bright; the products add great texture to a dish. At Le Bernardin, we crumble dried Fresh As mandarin segments over raw scallops to enhance the citrus flavor in the sauce, a burnt-lemon vinaigrette. They bring a light crispness that rehydrates and melts deliciously in your mouth. —Eric Ripert, Le Bernardin, New York City
