Celery-Fennel Slaw #KitchenMatrixCookingProject


Another week, another recipe for the Kitchen Matrix Project, named after Mark Bittman's Kitchen Matrix cookbook. You can read about it: here. This month, I picked the recipes for the month am I'm very excited about the dishes and the bloggers who are joining me. And I am thrilled with how simple these recipes are to make.

This week, I picked 'Celery + 16 Ways' for the group. If you don't have the cookbook, Bittman's celery recipes are available online at the New York Times: here.

Celery-Fennel Slaw

I opted to make a celery slaw with fennel because it's what I had and I love those flavors together. I used a mandolin to get the slices thin and uniform.

Ingredients

  • 2 C shaved celery
  • 2 C shaved fennel
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • freshly ground salt
  • pinch of fennel pollen


Procedure
Place all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Toss to coat. Let stand for at least 10 minutes for the flavors to meld. Serve immediately.

  1. I totally had such a hard time choosing from all 16 versions. Your slaw sounds amazing.

    1. I know! I am definitely going to try the other 15 versions throughout the weeks. I am intrigued by the marinated celery. That's up next!

  2. I love fennel as well but wanted to tie in the other ingredients for the month. I should have stuck with the celery alone LOL

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
