The strong aromatic flavor of fennel may not appeal to everyone. Especially those who hate the taste of anise will most likely dislike fennels as well. We absolutely love them and we have used them in many various ways, among other things as a part of chicken or meat stews, baked with cream and capers or such a side dish as shown in the opening picture.
Florence fennel is a selection with a swollen, bulb-like stem base that is used as a vegetable. It is a highly aromatic and flavorful plant used many various ways in cooking.
Oven-baked fennel with goat cheese is quite a fast made and simple dish, more precisely a side dish, and it is perfect for being served with meat, fish or poultry. The strong aroma softens when cooked or baked, so it’s worth trying at least once – you might even like it.
