Last Night’s Dinner: Monday 7 March

We had an onion, a lovely Savoy cabbage, a large tomato and some tins of chickpeas in the cupboard, so I popped to the shop for a red pepper and a couple of small fennel bulbs. This Denis Cotter-inspired stew is always a winner and a lovely balance of flavours. It’s one-pot cooking of the simplest variety and in no way bland. And there’s always a lovely olive oil-scented broth at the bottom of the bowl. This being us, we added a spoonful of some rather hot homemade chilli sauce to serve. Nice. As for Denis Cotter… his name will be cropping up regularly. Just wait and see. Or Google him. And buy his cook books.
