christmas eve harvest

Getting ready for tomorrow’s meal, I was pleasantly surprised how much there was to harvest. The menu will therefore include a fennel, leek, walnut and roquefort soufflé tart, celeriac and parsnip gratin, roast beetroot, sauteed oca and crosnes with buttered flower sprouts and cavolo nero – with a garnish of carrot slaw and winter salad leaves.

Merry Christmas!
