How to cook Fennel

The aromatic leaves are excellent in herbal teas and salads, or stuffed into fish before baking or roasting. The bulb can be eaten raw in salads, too, and should be thinly sliced. Fennel can also be steamed, baked, braised or roasted and is commonly used in Italian and French cuisine.

Fennel seeds are used widely as a spice, and the feathery tops (fronds) are also edible – use them as a garnish or tossed through salads for an aniseedy kick.
