  • About

A great dish for propping up, physically and flavourwise, Asian-flavoured pastries, fritters and the like. I like to use a lot of onion with the cabbage, sometimes close to equal quantities. One small cabbage will feed six people easily, in a supporting role to spring rolls or fritters. This one has to be for Patty Cremin, who was frying cabbage many years ago when it was neither fashionable nor profitable, though I never saw a bottle of sesame oil in her kitchen.
