Carrot three ways

Pickled carrot lattice roll with cashew nuts

I was given a challenge to make the humble carrot the star of the dish. I use a lot of carrot for cooking but I almost never make it a center piece. As soon as I got the challenge I went out to get some carrots and started thinking. The first thing that came to … Continue reading

Dried Lime Chilli Oil Brisket stew
