A CookTale

Harold McGee, who writes about the science of food and cooking, could explain why oven roasting slices of a Fennel Bulb so completely changes its character and flavor. All I know is that it evolves from an interesting vegetable, into a remarkably delicious one. On top of that it’s gorgeous.


Fennel Bulb (cut into 3/4″ slices)
Kosher Salt & Black Pepper
2 TB of EVOO
Fennel fonds for garnish


1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees.

2. Season the Fennel & douse it with the EVOO.

3. Place them in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes (depending on how charred you’d like it).
