Valentine’s Day brought snow and ice and dinner at home, which turned out accidentally to be all about onions.
We started with the new issue of Cook's and its potato-garlic soup. Leeks, gently cooked in butter. Sauteed garlic. Braised heads of garlic, simmered for an hour in home-made chicken stock (itself made with yellow onion), and then extruded and whipped to a paste.
Followed by fennel-grilled branzini, and then by a heart-of-palm salad. And topped off with Nancy’s Camembert, and My Neighbor Totoro.
