So, what is grosgrain?

Grosgrain is a sturdy and ribbed fabric that is commonly used in the fashion industry, but it is also an unexpected and useful ingredient in the culinary world. This durable fabric is made from a combination of silk, cotton, or synthetic fibers, and it adds a unique texture and appearance to dishes. It can be used as a decorative element, such as wrapping around a cake or tying around a bundle of herbs, or as a functional tool, such as tying up a roast. Its ribbed texture also provides a good grip for pulling or tying, making it a versatile ingredient in the kitchen.
