“To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.” -A. Bourdain

By the way – I think I discovered the ultimate vegetarian dish last night. The prep work is insanely lengthy, as is the cooking time, but letting vegetables stew and slowly bake to make soft and sweet ratatouille is really the way to go. This one was, of course, from Ottolenghi’s Plenty. The recipe and instructions are online here. It was just marvellous. Courgette, aubergine, butternut squash, peppers, parsnips, potatoes and much more create some wonderful mixtures of taste and colour. Just serve it with basmati rice and try it.
