This recipe comes from Dan Doherty of Duck and Waffle. Herbs and edible flowers come in a wonderful variety of flavours and aromas. Traditional herb-based green sauces, such as chimichurri and salsa verde, can be adjusted using whatever you find around. Peppery nasturtiums, tart wood sorrel and bitter flower petals mixed with good olive oil, shallots and a touch of lemon make a great accompaniment to steak, especially a tender, rare rump.
Sorrel sauce. It's so basic, yet so profoundly useful... and awesome. Sorrel tastes like lemonade in a leaf, and both wild and cultivated varieties grow like weeds in any garden. This rich, tart sauce is perfect with pasta, poached fish or poultry, or any other lightly cooked meat.
Duck breast in apple and calvados sauce - I just used this recipe and substituted plums for chopped desert apple and omitted the star anise. Finished the sauce with 100ml of double cream. YUMMERLISHIOUS!
