'Fennel' on Serious Eats

Easy One-Pot Chicken Bouillabaisse

Bouillabaisse is a classic southern French seafood stew flavored with tomatoes, saffron, and fennel, served with a garlicky mayonnaise-like sauce. Could we make these flavors work with chicken and cut the cooking time down to under half an hour start to finish? More

Spicy Stir-Fried Fennel, Celery, and Celery Root With Chinese Sausage

Sautéing a stalk or two of celery, plus a few slices of Chinese sausage, a little bit of chili pepper and lots of garlic, is my go-to dish to cook when I don't know what I want to eat. It is quick to make, economical, and perfect with a bowl of rice. This is a twist on my go-to dish, which combines celery with celery root, fennel, Chinese sausage, and tons of garlic.

That said, I still have a problem finding uses for it (other than slicing a piece and popping it in my mouth, of course), so I was pleased to try Tara Mataraza Desmond's expertly balanced and alliterative persimmon, pomegranate, and pistachio salad from her new cookbook, Choosing Sides.
