By: V Capaldi When you are 100% Italian you grow up enjoying fennel and this is my story.
I love to add fennel this time of year to many dishes and now that I am known as "Chef V"working with Cozymeal I serve fennel a lot learning that for many it is their 1st experience eating this flavorful veggie.
Fennel is also used to make liqueur & how my family was known to get their fennel on. Part of our charm!
It was a real treat to have it served as a side dish. Not a part of my family holiday traditions yet a part of my modern day holiday traditions. I like to include fennel to any holiday meal!
