    Oven-Baked Omelette

    Also called Omelette Soufflé, this is a mostly forgotten dish, halfway between an omelette and a soufflé. It can be served sweet or savoury depending on the garnish you use—either fresh fruit and jam or a savoury sauce.

    4 large free-range eggs, yolks and whites separated
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) freshly grated lemon zest

    Fennel, Orange, and Savoy Cabbage Salad with Mint and Pomegranate

    With citrus season upon us, what could be better than a classic fennel and orange salad? It’s light and refreshing, a perfect balance to heavier holiday meals, with a boost of vitamin C to boot. This version adds delicious crunchy cabbage and the bright juiciness of pomegranate. Perfect for sharing, this salad comes together quickly, and the flavour combination is sure to wow at any party you bring it to. Orange supreme To segment or “supreme” the orange, slice top and bottom off the orange so you have a flat surface to work with. With the flat edge on the cutting board, run your knife around the orange, removing skin in sections from top to bottom. Once all the skin is removed, hold the orange in your hand and carefully insert your knife along each section, cutting through to centre to remove each piece, avoiding the pithy sheath.  When all the segments have been removed, squeeze what remains of the orange over bowl to extract all of the juice. If you’re not using segments immediately, keep them in the juice so they stay fresh and moist.
