Leftover pork with fennel and new potatoes, April Cottage Cooking Club

pork, fennel, potatoes

It’s time for the April meet-up of The Cottage Cooking Club preparing dishes from the cookbook River Cottage Every Day by Hugh Fearnley- Whittingstall.

Our reunion came about through the goodness of our leader, Andrea Mohr of The Kitchen Lioness, Notes from a Very Small German Kitchen. It is a nice opportunity to gather together as we are able, and try out whatever dishes in the cookbook that might catch our fancy within the pages of the book.

My first dish for the month is a delicious combination of Leftover pork with fennel and new potatoes. This dish is simple and easy to prepare. I used leftover slow cooker pork but of course, the combination of ingredients works so well together that you needn’t only prepare it with leftovers.

Another nice dish for enjoying as a healthy and quick weeknight meal was the Warm leek and white bean salad with mustard dressing. You can prepare it using any combination of fresh greens. I simply tossed the greens with the dressing, portioned them into individual bowls then topped each salad with a generous mound of the leek and seasoned white bean mixture. Both dishes were well received all around.

Hoping all is well among our members and I’m sending happy thoughts and hugs out your way.

    These dishes are so pretty, Peggy. The second one looks like something that can go into a regular rotation. Thanks for sharing these.

      Hi Kelly, thanks so much! The white bean and leek could definitely go into a weeknight rotation as a quick and healthy dish so easy to put together. In a pinch, you could even use shallot or onion as a substitute for the leek leaving then the only need being keeping cans of cannellini beans in as the pantry staple. Talk to you soon. Big Hugs your way!

      Hi Emily! Thanks so much. I thought the dishes were quite lovely. The white bean and leek salad is so easy to assemble you could put it together in a matter of minutes for a quick lunch, dinner, or as a side! See you soon.
