"A special thank you Maynard and Benedict.
You were excellent teachers and gave us more than you probably realized.
Your interaction with us amateur cooks was respectful of our inexperience
and yet direct in your presentations. The techniques and short cuts
you showed us were invaluable. I was made to feel, "I can do that
when I get home." The quality of food and its presentation were
worthy of a five star rating."
Walnut Grove Recipes
Sautéed Savoy Cabbage
- 1/4 savoy cabbage
- 150g smoked bacon lardons
- 50g salted butter
- 3 onions
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 tbsp freshly chopped thyme
- salt & pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
This dish is very simple but tasty. It can be cooked
within 10 to 15 minutes and is fantastic served either as a vegetable
dish, with perhaps a traditional roast dinner, or can also be
used as part of a composite dish such as pan-fried chicken breast
served on a bed of savoy cabbage with a wild mushroom & truffle
1. Finely slice onions & garlic. Heat a heavy based saucepan
or wok, add olive oil then add the onion, garlic, thyme and bacon
lardons (bacon sliced into strips) and fry until the bacon is
2. Finely shred the cabbage and add to the pan with
the butter and continue to cook over a medium heat until the cabbage
is just cooked.
3. Season to taste and serve.
As well as the dishes mentioned above this also goes very well
with roasted fillet of salmon and is fantastic with most game.
Although all the vegetables and herbs can be pre-sliced/washed
beforehand, it is better to cook this dish just before serving
to ensure freshness of flavour and colour.
