- Program Description
Roger Swain opens in the suburban greenhouse displaying Solomon's Seal root which supposedly brings good luck to those who gamble.
Adrian Bloom is at Jardin Exotique in Monte Carlo, Monaco, exploring the botanical gardens. Most plants are cactus-related:
Chorisia insignis Agave stricta Golden barrel cactus Silver jade plant Aptenia cordifolia (groundcover) Kleinia neriifolia Aeonium arboreum Agave attenuata Fishbone euphorbia Opuntia strepta cantha Opuntia sp. Elephant bush Neobuxbaumia polylopha Mostera deliciosa Campanula sp. Erigeron Karvinskianus Abromeitiella brevitolia Opuntia leucotricha
Roger Swain displays a wonderful potted golden barrel cactus. He also shows us how to force chicory during winter. He plants chickory roots in pots of peat moss and waters it. The pots are covered with an inverted pot, excluding light. Within 3 weeks in a warm greenhouse, there are wonderful, milky white plants to harvest.
Roger harvests kale 'Winterbur' for Chef Marian's next recipe: Kale & Cod: Remove stems and slice 3/4 lbs. of kale (about 12 cups). Saute chopped garlic in 3 tb. olive oil; saute kale, in batches, until wilted. Add 1 cup of water and steam (covered) for 8 - 10 minutes.
Prepare vinegarette: 2 tb. Dijon mustard 2 tb. fresh lemon juice 1/4 c. veg. oil 1/4 c. olive oil 2 tb. chopped shallots salt and pepper
Add to kale four pieces of fresh cod fish steaks. Steam for another 8 - 10 minutes, covered.
Serve cod over kale, topped with warmed vinegarette.
