These both sound so good! 🥬 I slice my cabbage into thin “steaks” & roast with olive oil & salt. Sometimes I add vinegar, sometimes soy sauce & sesame oil & always chili. It makes an easy, crispy side dish (& diminishes their volume dramatically 😉

Yes, I've been back for a little over a month now! I've actually pared down on my posts for the holiday season (I'm only posting once a week until the end of January, except for the Sunday Sobremesas which are on the same schedule as always) so that's probably why you feel like you haven't heard from me as much! I admit I've had a hard time keeping up with everyone recently, too--I have so many things I want to read/do/make and not enough time in the day! I guess that's a good problem to have, though 😊

I hear you, too much to do and the race towards Christmas with all that it entails! As much as I adore festive gatherings, I can't wait for the calm of the first days of January to catch up with my reading (and cooking) list!! Still, glad toknow I'm not the only one caught up in the Christmas whirlwind. Besitos xx

Thank you for this! We have been very lucky lately to get huuuge, like ginormous, cabbages (Chinese, green and purple) from a neighbor who has a farmshare - I have been running out of ideas of what to do with them as I'm not yet ready to commit to learning to make kimchi! Excited to try these recipes!

Thank you for your comment! How lucky you are to have a generous farmer neighbour, do you get produce from them regularly? I've pinned Gillian's cabbage steak recipe in the comments if you want more inspiration and added a link to Vicki's latest newsletter where she shares her aunt's pickling method for red cabbage, ginger and apple (!), hope that helps with inspiration! (never made kimchi myself either, and probably never will lol)

Having lived in Warsaw I thought I'd already experienced 'Cabbage Central'. Apparently not! Both recipes look great, Sinù and your mother in law sounds like an unstoppable force.

This is such a delightful read, Sinù! Your mother-in-law seems like a force of nature, like someone I’d enjoy having a glass of champagne with--and some of that parsley frittata too! Both the cabbage pie and the soup sound like perfect winter fare--definitely dishes I’d like to attempt.

You'd like each other very much I believe, and her frittata is mind blowing, I keep asking her to share the recipe for the newsletter but she's too shy!!

Everything looks and sounds scrumptious! Your photos are very inviting and I enjoyed your Anna stories. As I have recently become a mother-in-law, I can relate to her desire to be involved! I think that I exhibit restraint.

Thank you Vicki, and congratulations on becoming a MIL. We really can't rebel against love, although I must admit that Italian mothers tend to overdoit when it comes to their male offspring lol!
