Roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon and walnuts

We had “an autumn feast dinner” with friends last Saturday and roasted duck was the main star of the menu. There are 2 classic side dishes for roasted duck here in Slovakia: braised cabbage and “lokše” thin pancakes made of potato dough. As a “cabbage freak” I decided to add one more side dish to the menu: roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon and walnuts. Well, it’s Thanksgiving classics, but this recipe is not known here. The most popular comment about this dish was “oh, I’ve hated Brussels sprouts since school times, but you made it really delicious”. So mind this recipe if you also have “cabbage haters” among your friends.

Roasted chicken thighs with fennel and orange

2 cool things have happened this week. First: short interviews with Slovak food bloggers about their favourite fall and winter dishes were published in the latest edition of Dobré Jedlo magazine.  So, I’m proud to be featured in the magazine that I like among a company of inspired people. Second: Oslavujeme s Teleránom cookbook has been on sale in book stores since this week and I can finally add it to my portfolio. And now back to the kitchen. Today I will share the recipe of a roasted chicken with fennel which I have been trying to test for the last 3 or 4 weeks. Why has it taken so long?   The reason  is I couldn’t find fennel anywhere: neither on farmer’s market nor in all grocery shops. Fennel had just disappeared and I was even thinking that it’s out of the season (but who cares about seasons when we have fresh grapes from Argentina in January). I found a few small fennel bulbs on last Saturday farmer’s market and, of course, bought it. Before I share the recipe, I want to say that it has been one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever tried.
