Gatim impreuna #deladistanta: Pulpa de miel cu cicoare de gradina – Olanda

”M-am nascut in casa in care locuiesc acum Malvina si familia ei, in Olanda. Inconjurata de oi, pui, pisici, pasari, albine si o mulțime de fructe si legume proaspat culese din gradina. Oile au pasunat pe pajistea de langa casa noastra, pe care apoi parintii mei au construit o noua casa. Uneori tata avea miei pentru sacrificat. Asta era destul de normal in tineretea lui, asa ca a pastrat obiceiul.

Pe atunci nu imi placea deloc carnea de miel, dar de fapt este delicioasa. E timpul sa va impartasesc o reteta frumoasa: pulpa de miel. Parintii mei o gateau cu menta, care este destul de specifica si mai putin potrivita pentru copii. Eu am inlocuit menta cu rozmarin. Acesta ii confera un gust mai subtil.

Am combinat pulpa de miel cu cicoarea de gradina (andiva belgiana), o leguma descoperita in Belgia in secolul al XIX-lea. Cicoarea este foarte cunoscuta in Belgia, Franta si Olanda.
Deoarece sotului si fiicei mele nu le place cicoarea, le-am gatit niste fasole verde. Si, desigur, orice masa olandeza nu exista fara cartofii copti.”

Oile, pisicile, gainile, albinele sunt tot acolo si acum iar alaturi locuiesc cel mai buni vecini pe care i-am avut vreodata. La fel de gustoase sunt si merele, strugurii, ciresele din gradina sau legumele pe care le cultiv in fiecare an in curtea din spate. Si casa veche in care am o multime de amintiri 😉 sau curtea in care se aud rasetele copiilor nostrii jucandu-se impreuna este la fel de pitoreasca.
Iti multumesc Rieneke ca mi-ai amintit toate acestea si ca mi-ai acceptat provocarea de a gati impreuna!

”I was born in the house where Malvina and her family now live, in the Netherlands. Surrounded by sheep, chickens, cats, birds, bees and loads of fruit and vegetables freshly picked from the garden. The sheep grazed in the meadow next to the house where my parents lately built a house. And sometimes my dad had a lamb slaughtered. That was quite normal in his young days, so he kept the habit.

In those days I did not like lamb meat at all, but it is actually delicious. Time to share a nice recipe with you: leg of lamb. My parents used to make it with mint, which is quite specific and less suitable for children. I replaced the mint with rosemary. That gives it a more subtle taste.

I combined the lamb leg with chicory, a vegetable discovered in Belgium in the 19th century. Chicory is very common in Belgium, France and the Netherlands.
As my husband and daughter do not like chicory I made them some green been. And of course a Dutch meal cannot do without the baked potatoes.”

The sheep, the cats, the chickens, the bees are still there and now next to me live the best neighbors I’ve have ever had. The same taste have the apples, grapes, cherries in the garden or the vegetables that I grow every year in the backyard. And the old house where I have a lot of memories;) or the yard where you can hear the laughter of our children playing together is just as picturesque.
Thank you Rieneke for reminding me all this and for accepting my challenge to cook with me.
