Hellllloooo new ingredient! Fennel Pollen is here + ready to play! Unfamiliar with fennel pollen? We've got it all covered in this blog post- what it is, what it's like, where it comes from + more. With such a beautiful, delicate ingredient it is important to give it the spot light. Here we made a bright, springy salad that essentially dresses itself between bites with the blood oranges. It makes a great mid-day snack or an impressive appetizer ((especially with this AE Ceramics Oyster plate!)
Having the time to chop the veggies and toast the spices and taste the soup change + develop as you go is a luxury that makes cooking dinner feel like a date with yourself, and there's nothing more wholesome than that. This soup, like any good soup, feels like a warm hug.
