I've never tried fennel before tonight. It is wonderful!! It may smell like licorice before you cook it but don't let that scare you away. For a hint of the flavor to come, take a sniff. Often likened in taste to licorice, fennel is in fact far more subtle with a texture similar to celery, and, unlike licorice, the flavor is savory, not sweet. Like celery, it is filling and yet very low in calories, so that it provides an excellent snack food for weight watchers. I used this recipe from Sara's Secrets, the wine is a must if you ask me.
