This week's I Heart Cooking Clubs theme was pretty easy - Potluck! Every month you get to make whatever you want from whichever featured chef you want. And as it happened I had a dish in reserve.
I first made Diana Henry's radicchio and red onions with white bean puree back in August when I first got A Change of Appetite. I'd loved the sweet bursts of the red grapes I'd added to it back then, so this time I achieved a similar effect with quartered ripe figs. We had it with some wild boar sausages and it was a wonderful combination!
Having sausages with it made it a pretty substantial meal, so I ended up with a portion of the radicchio and red onion mixture left over. I heated it through with some pieces of pancetta and a spoonful of creme fraiche and used it as a sauce for pasta. Very pretty and very delicious.
