I expected my new macaron kit to be delivered today. It wasn’t. And I had to look for an alternative recipe.
At the weekend I bought a mortar and pestle so I decided to crush some caraway seeds (1 tablespoon) and white peppercorns (1 teaspoon) for a fennel salad dressing.
Slice your fennel very thinly. I used a kitchen gadget that is very common in Swiss households. A Börner slicer. I think it was the first thing my parents bought me for my first flat. It is a brilliant gadget but should come with a health warning because it is hellishly sharp. When using it you really have to watch not to slice off half your finger!
