The Travelling Gourmet cooks with…

Warrigal Greens from Outback Pride of South Australia. I brought back the “Australian Spinach” air flown on an A380 jet from Tasting Australia 2012.
Today on Monday 7 May 2012, I created a new dish called “Scallops with Warrigal Greens and Onions in a Creamy Sauce with Deutz NV Champagne. Champagne is simply ‘superbe’ when it comes to cooking with seafood. I like to cook with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food, Ha! Ha! I believe that creating and serving a dish for yourself and others to enjoy can lift up your spirits in a way nothing else can. After all, FOOD is LIFE!

I also used the Scallops in the Champagne Sauce au Gratin in a giant Portobello Mushroom at 175C for 10 minutes and garnished it with Julienne of crisp Warrigal Greens! Very yummy in my tummy!
Eaten raw, Warrigal Greens have a nice bite to it and a velvety texture. On the palate, a slight flavour of fresh cut lime. No wonder the Aborigines used to eat tons of Warrigal Greens in the bush!

La passione timid dei propri colori tutto cio che tocca! It means in Italian: Passion colours everything it touches!

Buen provecho! {:-)
