a winter gratin

Amid the wintry desolation I was happily surprised yesterday to find this array of vegetables, L to R: cabbage, chioggia & golden beetroot, parsnip, kholrabi and celeriac.


What do you want to do ?

And thanks to my great big Global cleaver, together with the cavalier approach to peeling that it enables, was able quite quickly to transform the muddy roots into a tasty gratin.

    Haha, thank you – though it’s more greed than anything else 🙂


  3. Love this colourful and eccentric bunch of underground creatures. They must have made a memorable gratin.
    What’s this great big Global cleaver? I have a French peeler with a swivelling blade that slices very thinly. Any similarity?

    Thank you Ashen. And the cleaver is a big knife made by a brand called Global. Horribly expensive but excellent for the job. https://globalknives.uk/vegetable-chopper-g5
