Jack Frost and his nippy mates have been hanging around the country lately making the kitchen a decidedly attractive place to be. Stews, soups and roasts are great options, as are big trays of roasted vegetables that can be finished off with tangy dressings, or my favourite way, with a caper dressing and slabs of pan-fried haloumi. It’s extraordinarily good!
I’m also covering off
celeriac this week. I’ve held back waiting for it to come down in price but with a bit of luck you may snag a bargain at your local farmers’ market. It’s an interesting vegetable, ugly as anything, with a flavour that’s milder than celery, especially when eaten raw, though it becomes more pronounced when cooked, There’s heaps you can do with celeriac, but one of the best ways I reckon is serving it as a mash topped with crispy little nuggets of bacon. And it teams nicely with beetroot and walnuts. This week is the final week to vote in the Saveur Blog Awards.
