Roasted Squash and roots with Miso Harissa Dressing

Roast Squash and Roots with Miso Harissa Dressing

Our last meal was a pickled herring with stamppot and was perfect for one of those gloomy late-fall days that is cold, grey and damp. This on the other hand is the food equivalent of leaf peeping colourfulness and dry crisp days with blue skies. It’s a warm salad of roasted Delicata squash, celeriac, turnips […]

Dashi — making it, and a couple of simple uses

Dashi — making it, and a couple of simple uses

I have always had a great fondness for japanese cuisine; it’s combination of simplicity in presentation and depth of flavour to bring out the best in fresh produce. Whether it’s the simple grilling of a Robatayaki or the warming oily depth of ramen (like this, not like this), there is just something so cleansingly right about the […]
