Market ingredient: Cavolo nero
Difficulty: Medium. The dough requires a bit of love and labour.
Deliciousness: Simple cheesy fun
Did The Beard like it? Yes, but not seasoned enough for his Lebanese, hungover taste buds.
Buona pasqua, tutti! I hope everyone is having a thoroughly enjoyable long weekend of over-indulgence. In honour of this Pagan-Christian (whichever way you swing) festival, I thought it would be rude not to cook something a little festive. My challenge this week was:
- Create something with the delicious bunches of cavolo nero found at Kurrajong Organics stall this week,
- Make something Easter-y, and who better to turn to for inspiration than those proud staunch Catholics, the Italians,
- Prove a certain Italian HTML developer that people outside of his homeland can actually cook,
- Make sure the weekend wasn’t all about sweet stuff, since Ruski and her adoration for Sarah Wilson has now made me a little paranoid about all things sugary.
