Jerome Lanmark Calayag shares his recipe for a versatile vegetarian dish featuring sourdough and seasonal Savoy cabbage. It's the ideal starter for a three-course dinner for guests or an at-home dinner date.
Calayag's inspiration for the dish came about after seeing savoy cabbage grown in the fields local to him in Sweden, boasting a far better environmental footprint than greenhouse grown cabbages. He introduced the sourdough element because it's something that he always has freshly-baked at home. "I love sourdough because of the health benefits and its versatility. I use it to make pancakes, seed crackers, bread and more. I never buy bread from the store anymore, I bake artisan sourdough loaves instead," he says.
Calayag recommends everyone give this dish a go at home - not only is it simple to make, it also shows how easy it is to make delicious food out of simple seasonal produce. The dish can also be adapted to what's in season wherever you live, like adding mushrooms, and making the flavours local to you.
