Espuma of Basil Mustard for Crudité

Include a variety of vegetables in your crudité. Create a feeling of seasonal abundance with a selection of baby carrots, radishes and tiny Hakurei turnips, all with a bit of the stem left on, to pick them up. Use cherry tomatoes, celery hearts, baby fennel, green beans, blanched or raw cauliflower and broccoli florets and little potatoes steamed in their jackets.
