  1. Great tutorial! I love fennel but hardly ever prepare it.

    What type of video camera do you have? I’m in the market! πŸ™‚

  2. I really do like fennel but end up wasting it because of cutting it! Thanks for the tip!

  3. we have the same cutting boards, same knives, and same bowls πŸ™‚ i love fennel salads with oranges (citrus evoo, citrus juice, s&p as dressing). you can also sprinkle the fronds on top for decoration πŸ™‚

  4. πŸ™‚ LOVE the video – great til the last second! Haha

  5. I’ve never tried fennel, but I am tempted. Adding it to a salad raw sounds like a delicious way to try it out!

  6. Great video πŸ™‚ I have never cooked with fennel. I love how much light you get in your kitchen- just awesome!

  7. Thanks Sabrina – I’ve never bought fennel before but it looks pretty easy now!

  8. have i mentioned that i love when you do videos?! makes me feel like i know you πŸ™‚

  9. Phew, I cut it right πŸ™‚ Love fennel! I use it on flatbreads a lot. At least that’s my favorite way to eat it πŸ™‚

  10. We have fennel growing in our backyard! Definitely have to apply your techniques when we go back there to harvest. πŸ˜‰

  11. I LOVE fennel and eat it both in salad and roasted. I’m a HUGE fan.

  12. We eat fennel pretty often, with apples in salads or chopped with mustard, white wine, and scallops. I also just love snacking on it; it is so refreshing!

    I have never had fennel, but I will have to give it a try. At the end you mention it’s also known as Anise so I’m assuming anise seed is from fennel?

  14. ahhhhh love the video, so helpful! My friend brought fennel gratin to a potluck last week, anything with cheese on it is awesome

  15. Thanks! I’m getting fennel in my CSA box today! πŸ˜€

  16. I have to admit I am typically not much of a fennel fan. I don’t really care for it raw, though roasted it’s much more pleasant to me. I think it’s because in general, the anise taste is not my thing, but I find this flavor mellows when it gets caramelized either on the stovetop or in the oven.

  17. Sabrina- thanks soooo much for this! I LOVE fennel. it brings me back to my childhood days- i had a best friend whose mama was authentic french and dad was swiss. EVERY meal, snack etc. there was fresh yummy and unfortunately un-repeatable until now! My friend’s mom used to make fennel salad with freshly baked french bread (which i am not ready to attempt) and now i can re-create at home! I LOVE how you have taught me (and im sure others) to enjoy food as/with memories. thank you so much. PS: LOVE the spot on babycenter! Great job with that- great posts!

  18. omg hilarious too by the way- i also never knew this was anise! I actually dont usually like anise seed but like fennel!?!? huh?!

    I love how your cousin goes “ooooh” at the end of the video. Too funny!

    Great video! You can actually put the fennel fronds (the leafy looking part of the green stems) in salads instead of throwing it away. I think I have seen some Giada de Laurentiis recipes that use the fronds, too.

    Save the fronds! Use them as a garnish…

  22. Love fennel and loved the video!!!

  23. Love the video πŸ™‚ I used to not like it, but it’s definintely been growing on me the past few years! Plus I had this AMAZING goat cheese spread with carmalizd onions and fennel and I want to re-create it this weekend so this is great!
