Yvette van Boven’s autumn dish!
Posted in kitchen October 5th, 2009 by pia


Hi All!

Long time no see, you might have thought. Yes, true: I have been busy. Busy with a lot of things, but most of all with my book! Yey, you have read that right, I am going to work on quite a huge volume, so I will be found behind my computer and at the drawing board more and more these coming months. I’m really looking forward to that. I will post some exercises I’m doing now and then. Everything must be practiced of course. So you will be my guinea pigs, if you like!
I’m so lucky to have a boyfriend who is the wonderful photographer Oof Verschuren. He took the picture and I cooked this recipe as I am trying to lose some pounds (which is not working by the way, I don’t know how Pia can indulge herself on all that chocolate all the time and still stay so pretty and slim). Anyway, I was looking for something light, but also fit for Autumn and filling enough for a dinner, without being too heavy, with potatoes and so on. This is one of my all time favorites, my mum used to make it in Ireland, It’s quite old fashioned, but I think good things survive time and still stay on top! I combined the dish with Gremolata, a classic Italian ‘pinch of parsley’, which goes very well with the meat.
Hope it gets you cooking too.
have fun,
