I’m not sure how the butcher persuaded me to buy some turkey (you must know that I’m not exactly a turkey fan) but here I was, back at home, staring at a couple of big thighs. What to do?… Recipe: Here comes “Turketta”
While in Trento (in the Italian North Eastern region of Trentino), and cooking with local Grappa, I came up with this recipe…… Recipe: The Drunken Venison Fillet
I love testing recipes, especially the ones that require slow cooking… Last week I tried to slow roast a whole rabbit, (a bit too much for a dinner for two). No specific recipe and I didn’t bother to write down what I’ve been using, (oops). I tend to work with what I have available at home, particularly those ingredients that risk to be on their way to the wastebin. (I always manage to find a lonely carrot or a single tomato…, but this is another recipe).
Here I am with a lot of roasted rabbit, some beef-mince, half courgette, a chunk of stale bread and one egg. It’s “Polpette time!”, however the mix was a bit too soft for classic polpette, ergo I opted for a quenelle shape. And into the oven they went, 180C (about 370F), 15-20 minutes.
