Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.

You ate how many turnips?

Appetizer:

Lebanese pickled turnips. (You've eaten them, sliced, in your felafel sandwich from the Lebanese takeaway, but you can buy them by the jar - whole, about an inch or so in diameter - from middle eastern shops*.)

And a small dish of tahini or hummus or baba ganoush; the latter two topped with a splash of olive oil, a squirt of fresh lemon juice and a sprig of flat-leaf parsley.

Dip.

Eat.



*I buy mine from A1 Lebanese Food Store, just up the street from oh my god not again! That's two in a week!
