lovely recipie,I found I had no white wine so i let it reduce ans I added bout half a cup of cream,worked a treat!! - 10 May 2011


Can't use onions due to allergy so used same amount of fennel bulb sliced. Some salt needs to be added after cooking as does pepper so be frugal. 120ml wine needs to be cooked down to about a half and then as about 60ml added with 300ml chicken stock. I like rich food so at the end I added a tablespoon heaped of Oyster Sauce (salty)and used a sweet Paprika level tsp on the mix 5 minutes before the end of cooking together with a taablespoon of cream. and I want more after eating. I served it with a Piadina serving the lumps (meaty bits) in the Piadina halved and coned X2 like a Tapas sauce in a boat separately but could equally be served with chips rice cous cous pancakes; a very adaptable dish. ****** - 08 Feb 2013
