I read once that our taste buds change every seven years. And although this theory sounds a bit fishy, there are indeed some things (besides movies) which I rediscovered after many years. As a child for sure there were some things that landed on your plate which made you cry. Was it broccoli? Was it brussels sprouts? Well, for me it was butter. And look at me now – I simply adore butter. When I recently visited London, I tried brown butter for the very first time. Now I use it with pasta, vegetables, cakes, desserts… the smell is amazing and even though I cook mostly vegan, butter is now one of the few things I can’t imagine cooking without.

Jerusalem artichokes also met my taste buds in London for the first time. I was expecting something more in the taste like the traditional artichokes, but, to my big surprise, I got brown tubers on the plate that looked more like petite potatoes with a great nutty flavour. So, as I came back home I just had to try them my way and now I think they are one of my favourite vegetables. Also, they are so easy to prepare. So here it is: Jerusalem artichoke – tender and nutty, pear – fresh and sweet, caramelized walnuts, goat cheese, coriander and lemon zest for the perfect finish. Because life is too short to wait another seven years…
