I thought the name of this recipe might grab your attention, it certainly called out to me. What a great combination of flavours.

This recipe comes from River Cottage Veg by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. I have had this book for a few months and used it a few times, but this is the first time I have written about it. I don't know what took me so long.

I am a great fan of River Cottage and Hugh. I used to avoid all things River Cottage, thinking it to meaty to contemplate, but I have learned the error of my ways. Hugh and his team certainly have a way with vegetables, baking and desserts.

You can read my review of The River Cottage Baby and Toddler Cookbook along with a recipe for Lentils with Onions & Watercress, My review of The Herbs Handbook, which is out next month and a recipe for Greedy Pudding Pear Cake which may not be exact, as I scribbled down notes for it while I was watching Hugh make it on tv, but is still rather special.
