When I think of winter vegetables, kale is often one of the first things to come to mind for me. And one of my favourite things to match with kale is mushrooms. So now we have kale and mushrooms, can anybody guess what the next ingredient is going to be? It has to be bacon, which according to people on the internet is pretty much the best thing ever. Now that we have kale, bacon, and mushrooms I think we need to make a salad. And thus is born Sous Chef Florian’s Top Ten creation – Warm Mushroom and Baby Kale salad with crispy maple bacon. That’s a winner in my book.
Another great dish with flavours that I find perfect for cool winter weather is the Fennel Infused Baked Whole Mediterranean Fish. Served with sautéed vegetables and seven grain rice, the whole fish has very homey and comforting presence that just makes you feel good on a cold winter night.
