Recipe By: Nanita (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/243)
Serves 4 Cook: 20 min

Ingredients

Butter as required
Fennel bulb 1
Onion 1/2
Stock 600ml
Milk 200ml
Double cream 100ml
Salt & pepper as required
Fennel fronds for garnish as required

Method

1
Heat the butter in a pan.
2
Add the thinly sliced fennel and onion. Season with a bit of salt. Put the lid on and fry slowly on low heat until softened.
3
Add the stock and simmer until nice and soft. Add the milk.
4
With a hand blender, make a puree of Step 3. Add the double cream, salt & pepper.
5
Blend again to a smooth creamy finish.

Tips & Note

●You could add one small potato to give it more creaminess but you'd lose the lovely fennel flavour.
●Put the lid on at Step 2 - this will get a good concentrated flavour in the steam without burning the vegetables.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
