Braised Beef With Carrot Puree
One of the first cookbooks my mum ever bought was Il Cucchiaio d'Argento (The Silver Spoon). Forty years on and this bible of Italian cooking has traversed the test of time, as she still lovingly thumbs her way through its encyclopaedic index of traditional and classic recipes.
Although her copy of the cookbook has well and truly been eclipsed by today’s modern techniques and culinary styles, it’s fun flicking through the book with mum as she recalls the many dishes she has prepared from “her bible” over the years.
One such recipe is “Manzo Brasato” or Braised Beef that she serves with a carrot puree. My mum cooks this family favourite on rotation every 2-3 weeks.

Carrot Puree adds a delectable flavour to the Braised Beef.
Saute the onion, celery and carrots add the piece of beef then brown on all sides before adding the wine to braise.
