update

NOW WE’RE EATING Layered chips Golden, crunchy spuds? Yes, please. Perk up cold January with this new, impressive take on chips and dips From triple-cooked chips to hasselback roasties and pommes aligot (cheesy whipped potatoes), the humble spud has been the focal point of many trends in the last couple of years. Here’s a new one we (and restaurants) can’t get enough of – thinly sliced and layered, then pressed and deep-fried to make next-level chips with fluffy centres and crispy outer layers. It might be a bit more effort, but we guarantee it’s worth it for the extra crunch. We’re seeing them served topped with a spiced crab mayonnaise at London’s Two Lights (twolights.restaurant), as latkes with Aleppo chilli at Bubala (bubala. co.uk, see p140), or simply with steak at Quality Chop House…

banana blossom

What is it? Banana blossom, also known as banana heart or banana flower is the dark purple-maroon flower that grows at the end of a bunch of bananas. What does it taste like? Nothing like banana! Once you’ve stripped back the hard, purple leaves you’re left with the tender leaves and ‘heart’, similar in form, texture and taste to artichoke. The flavour isn’t strong – it’s used more for texture. How should I cook it? Banana blossom has long been used in Southeast Asian cooking, but we’ve noticed it cropping up in the UK as a vegan ‘fish’ substitute. London-based fish & chip shop Sutton & Sons (suttonandsons.co.uk) made headlines in 2018 when they launched an entirely vegan branch, using battered banana blossom to mimic fish. Since then, several restaurants have followed with ‘fish’ tacos…

plant-based ‘cheese’

Taking part in Veganuary or know someone who is? While it’s easier than ever to get your hands on great dairy-free milks and even yogurt, finding good vegan cheese has been notoriously more difficult. Last January, we conducted a vegan cheese taste test (see the results at bbcgoodfood.com) and although we did find a few winners, the standard overall was low. This year, things have progressed. The latest example is a vegan imitation of smoked applewood cheddar by Tyne Chease (pictured). It may be way off in texture, with a pâté-like consistency, but it has the right acidity, salinity and smokiness of Applewood cheddar. Buy it at online vegan marketplace onlyve.com (£8.95 for 150g).…
