Our Growing Edge April 2016 Intro


I hope you didn’t all fall for my April Fools Hoax on Facebook on Friday!

Now that we are in April, we have a new edition of Our Growing Edge.

This month is hosted by Jordan from Vermilion Red.

Basically anything you didn’t like when you were younger which you now love, or are learning to love

This is theme is close to my heart and something I enjoy writing about. When I started this blog, I had a list of foods I didn’t like, but over the last 5 years, my tastes have changed and developed and I can now consider those foods my friends. Foods I used to hate but now love include: blue cheese, courgette (zucchini), eggplant, mushroom.

Foods I used to hate but don’t hate anymore (but not quite on the love boat just yet) include: pumpkin (squash), lentils.

I think a big part of it is correct cooking. Finding flavours that work well with those ingredients so that you can incorporate them in rather than have them star in the dish.

I hope you have fallen in love with foods in this way too and I hope you can share your recipes and experiences with Our Growing Edge this month.

Some new food adventures you could try this month
  • Cook a dish you disliked as a child
  • Cook with an ingredient you disliked 5 years ago but love today
  • Incorporate a new flavour into an old classic
  • Cook with a vegetable you have grown to love
