Who's A Fussy Pot?
It's a little time-consuming but I like to pick the twiggy bits off rocket ("arugula" to the few Americans who read this blog..."Hello!") before I use the leaves. It's a look-and-(mouth)feel thing which is quite a big part of the whole eating experience, right? A rocket salad is so much prettier and tastier without the yucky stems. Does that make me a fussy pot? Some restaurants do it, some don't. They all should. What's the point of using top-notch ingredients in a dish when it's going to be marred by hard sticky bits in their rocket garnish or side salad? Huh? Huh? Huh?!
