Chicken and Asparagus Rolls
I only really started getting into cooking about 10 years ago due mainly to the necessity of creating fresh and healthy meals for our little Cavalier fur-baby; from the first day he arrived he turned his nose up at dog food. This eventually extended into a passionate embrace of home-cooking in general.
There weren’t a myriad of excuses as to why I didn’t cook – in fact there were just two – a lack of time and cooking ability. In hindsight the “I can’t cook” stance permeated from I can’t be bothered cooking. It was just easier to go out for dinner 3-4 times a week.
So, this will give you some insight into the meals I do prepare – for me it’s all about simplicity, healthy goodness and taste and although these chicken and asparagus rolls look complicated to make – trust me - they’re not.
At home, I hardly ever eat or cook with butter however, in 2012, I chanced upon an artisan dairy producer in Sydney who was making cultured butter. Unfortunately, Australia still sees cultured butter as a gourmet delicacy however it’s considered much more mainstream in Europe.
I used Pepe Saya cultured butter
in this recipe to make a white wine and herb reduction to drizzle over the . This dish isn’t my usual vegan, low fat, gluten free, dairy free style dish but the flavours and the dish itself is simply … delicious.
