“You had me at batter”
Crispy, tender, flavoured and moist, anything battered with a golden crust tastes like heaven. And tempura must be its fallen angel. Probably one of the best inventions of Japanese cuisine, this batter-coated finger food is a great way to kick off any delicious meal and is a quick and fun fix: just mix flower with some corn starch, whish up with some sparkling water and dip your vegetable sticks in it. For extra crunch add panko crumbs. Use a high edged skillet or pan to deep fry the tempura nibbles.
Say it with flowers
For a tasty weekend lunch with the family or a weekday supper with friends, cauliflower is your trusted friend. A gentle partner in crime that gives a dish extra finesse without being overpowering and that can easily carry the more outspoken flavour of asparagus in this fresh spring salad: gently steam or blanch the cauliflower florets and bits of asparagus. While at it, start cooking your grains – such as wheat berries or farro – and start baking the vegetables as soon as they’re done parboiling. When ready, toss all the above together, mix in some cuts of fresh roman salad, crunchy baked bits of chorizo and walnuts, and top off with a honey vinaigrette. Sweet, delicious, easy and fun. Just as spring should be.
