|Fennel & chicken quiche|
Making gnocchi or pizza at home but actually having them there was a different thing. Unlike some who went looking for Indian food, I stayed away from what we usually eat and it was a trial of different kinds of pasta, risotto and breads for me. One ingredient that I brought back was fennel. Although fennel seeds are widely used used in cooking, I have only seen the bulbs on cooking shows. At the moment, I do have fennel plants in a pot but I had scattered the seeds in order to use the dainty leaves as a garnish for my baked goodies.

A slice of the quiche. This served ten people. I had taken it to my sister's and the slices went off fast. More people in her house. Everybody loved the taste of fennel. As for the photos of the trip I shall be uploading them in my next post.
