ADDICTIVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON and DATES

ADDICTIVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON and DATES

BACON BRAISED CABBAGE with BLOOD ORANGE VINEGAR

BACON BRAISED CABBAGE with BLOOD ORANGE VINEGAR

As cabbage keeps better than lettuce onboard, I have been working on some recipes using cabbage to add to my galley repertoire. Our favourite so far is Japanese Pancakes… Braised cabbage is also an easy addition to a grilled supper and I find that a sprinkle of vinegar adds so much to the flavour, which brings me to the reason for this post… Recently we spent a wonderful evening dining with friends and part of their very generous host gift…
