Looks aren’t everything, especially when it comes to food, right? Pâté is a super tasty thing we just don’t have that much control over. This one isn’t chopped liver; you’ll have the vegans and meatatarians going back for seconds. Move pâté past its usual appetizer residence to a condiment and toss it in hot pasta and rice or spread it on sandwiches and flatbreads.
Moussaka is a complex tasting greek lasagne where eggplant is employed for noodles and béchamel sauce for cheese. Invite guests to a symposium of flavour so they too can sing the praises of this beloved dish… and the cook! And while you’re at it, make a double batch and freeze one pan to spruce up a dreary winter day.
Presenting the 21st century mother sauce of French cuisine! Use this health-giving, satiny white sauce as the base for other sauces (like alfredo and mornay) or the backbone for casseroles (think grains and mac & cheese) and creamy soups and chowders. The long and short of it, your freezer should never be without at least a litre of béchamel sauce for backup.
Fennel is a vegetable with a lot going for it! Raw, it is crisp and sweet tasting of cool licorice while cooked, it becomes toothsome revealing its mellower personality. Unusual and extraordinary, this versatile condiment befits specialty sandwiches, cheese and charcuterie plates or serving with fish and cold cooked meats.
