How to Combat Veggie Boredom for Great British Chefs

Strawberry and Fennel Carpaccio (c)2013 La Domestique

Hello there! I’m sad to have been so quiet for the last couple of weeks here at La Domestique, but I was very sick in the hospital with a stomach bug. The husband took great care of me and our new Irish friends and neighbors were so kind and supportive. I’m feeling much better and excited to share some of my latest work with you today. It’s National Vegetarian Week in Britain, and the fantastic website, Great British Chefs, invited me to contribute a blog post celebrating vegetables. You’ll find my piece, “How to Combat Veggie Boredom,” on their website. I had a great time thinking up bold and punchy flavor pairings for unique vegetable dishes. It’s all about playing with color, highlighting seasonal flavors, and adding a variety of textures to the dish. Click the Great British Chefs icon below to find inspiration on cooking with vegetables in season right now as well as two of my original recipes: Strawberry and Fennel Carpaccio and Grilled Broccoli with Black Olive Tapenade.

      Thank you! I was so disappointed about that. I’m looking at my calendar dreaming of a new date. Hopefully our paths may cross! :)

  2. Glad to hear you are on the mend Jess. Hopefully you’ll get to Dublin another time (and if you see Bono or the Edge, do say hi to them for me). Your recipes sound wonderful – what a fun collaboration.

  4. I’m not vegetarian but I love vegetables. I often think there are not enough creative vegetarian choices on the menu, not only vegetarians eat vegetables.
