Fennel soup with toasted fennel seed oil and horseradish
We love the idea of adding flavour to dishes with simple infused oils, such as a herb or spice oil, and the toasted fennel seed oil here adds lift and nuttiness to this creamy fennel soup. A crumbling of blue cheese or thin shavings of aged cheddar would also make a lovely extra topping.

Fennel gratin
Gratins are pure comfort food. In this dish fennel's aniseed notes are mellowed in the cream. It's a gratin that goes wonderfully with pan-fried fish or roasted beef, or just with a salad and some bread for a simpler meal.
