in my 2013 year of refining we are cleaning out the ‘storage’ room also known as the third bedroom. In the process I have released a few years worth of hoarded UK and Australian food magazines. I have one small pile to go and I am now keeping it on a shelf in the kitchen until such time as I can bear to let them go. As I flipped through I found a fresh salad recipe that looked perfect for mid-winter. It is so easy you wouldn’t need a recipe, but I’ll include one below. I can’t find a link online and it was a pull out card in the magazine courtesy of my favorite euro-chef Jamie Oliver. Carpaccio of apples with bursts of juicy pomegranate seeds. I will say I tried out the fantastic whacking on the pomegranate with a spoon method and I got so many seeds easily-great life hack. I crunched through far more than made it on to the plate. Creamy pine nuts are a new favorite. It was a great weeknight salad – easy and good for you. Happy days!
