A culinary tragedy that should never have been published!
It’s hard to believe, but even the librarycook doesn’t have a 100% success rate choosing the right recipe. Such was the case with the December/January edition of Delicious, which included an abomination of a recipe called Sesame Butter Radishes with Lemon.
Touted as a way to update your salads and sides repertoire, the section included ideas such as Spiced Crumbed Parsnip with Herb Labneh, Honey Butter and Saffron Carrots with Feta and a Sweet Potato Salad with Sage, Speck and Horseradish.
These may well have been lovely. Delicious even, like it says on the cover. But the radishes? What were they thinking – stir frying radishes – the whole point of which is that they are crisp – until tender? And then pouring over a heart attack’s worth of butter. AND to top it off, there wasn’t even time for reading.
So. Any redeeming features to this recipe at all? The librarycook is not usually a harsh critic, but in this case? Consider yourselves warned!
