Not Just a Flash in the Pan: November 2019

29 November, 2019

This month championing charcuterie alongside some suitably seasonal dishes as we head into the winter months.

A very vegan start to the day – a deliciously healthy brekkie bowl of quinoa and cultured sprout salad, liquorice and dark chocolate dusted avocado, cashew butter.

‘Were I a GP, I would invariably prescribe stracciatella for most ailments; light veal stock, egg laid this morning and aged Parmesan. Also, please never put greenery in your Stracciatella.’
A great example of food as medicine – wise words indeed!

Bagna cauda at Bocca di Lupa – This version of the classic Piedmontese dish has a hint of lemon, and uses cream to help it stay in emulsion: neither are common twists, but both are authentic. Apparently you can enhance the dish with shavings of white truffle – for something a little bit more luxurious.

Kubbeh Kibbeh – hand rolled semolina and bulgur dumpling at The Barbary  – their take on the classic Levantine dish is filled with a minced lamb and beef mix, onions, garlic, pine nuts and spices, and served with velvety tahini and harissa oil. Brings back good memories of my recent trip to Israel.
