As much as I am drawn to simple, one pot meals my husband love tedious, challenging cooking.
Exhibit A: This is pork belly, slow roasted for hours in the oven served with couscous. And that bottom piece of food art? Well, that is a vegetable terrine. Its layered with fried apple slices, a mixture of potato, parsnip, and ricotta mash, roasted carrots with a maple glaze, puree of spinach and kale and topped with steamed asparagus and caramelized pearl onions.
Each layer has to be made, then layered, then refrigerated so it can be sliced for serving. The result is an amazing vegetable medley, but seriously?
I'm not complaining mind you. I love the meals that are placed before me for dinner. I feel like the luckiest girl sometimes.
