I’ve never had endives.
And to be honest I’m not sure how I feel about them…
I served this dish with pork and baked potatoes.
It was a good combination.
The apples and grapes gave the endives flavour and the pork moisture.
On their own, they tasted like… boiled cabbage.
While I was making dinner a friend came over to pick up her son and she said she cooks with endives regularly.
It gave me confidence to persevere with the dish.
She also said she uses it raw, adding it sparingly to salads.
And there ends my entire experience and knowledge of endives!
We are flying to Queensland as I post this week’s recipe.
A week of theme parks, beaches and galleries!
But I’m curious to see how the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie group felt about this dish and I am already looking forward to catching up when I return!
