Venice on a plate

A simple summer menu by Russell Norman from his table in Venice to yours…

Fennel, mint and orange salad

Insalata di arance e fi nocchi alla menta


The fennel bulbs I buy from Stefano on Via Garibaldi are about the size of a small fist, but have fronds that extend upwards so that they sometimes protrude from the top of my shopping basket. This is in contrast to the fennel found on supermarket shelves, which tend to be neatly trimmed and polite. I prefer the unruly version because the herby extensions come in very handy for recipes like this one. Raw fennel is such a great ingredient, particularly when sliced very thinly; the intense liquorice flavour can sometimes take you by surprise.


• 1 fennel bulb
