F is for Fennel, Fenugreek and Figs
Would any of these be your choices? Do you have another dish that would fit 'F is for' ?
Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
F is for Fennel
Fennel is from the same family as the herb and seed of the same name, it's also known as Florence fennel, finocchio, or sweet fennel, and is very popular in Italian cookery. When eaten raw, the texture is crisp and the flavour is quite assertive and aniseedy. Cooked, it's softer and more mellow.
A lovely recipe that uses fennel is
Cod Parcels Steamed - With Fennel and Herbs
Serve up this pretty parcel of flaky cod, sweet fennel and fresh herbs.
Fenugreek is a herb that features predominantly in food that most would call spicy. Whether you are making an Indian dish or something from South America such as a Chili Beef, Fenugreek can add subtle hints of sweet and nutty flavour that taste almost like overcooked sugar.
Fragrant figs have a rich jammy taste and a soft, chewy texture that works in sweet or savoury recipes. Turkish figs are distinctive in appearance, with a dusky purple-brown skin, and vibrant red flesh inside. Figs don’t ripen after picking, so select plump fruits with unbroken skins.
