Carrots and Parsnips Exupery

Closeup of Carrots and Parsnips Exupery

Recipe adapted from Simplicity from a Monastery Kitchen

I’ve spent the winter in a Monastery. Well, cuisine-wise anyway. In search of inspiration during a seasonal chef’s most challenging months, I discovered Simplicity from a Monastery Kitchen: A Complete Menu Cookbook for All Occasions. Brother Victor-Antoine d’Avila-Loutourette, whose origins are obscure and whose abode is in upstate New York, has written many monastic cookbooks. My blog features only one parsnip recipe: delicious, nostalgic oven braised parsnips and carrots. So it's Brother Victor-Antoine to the rescue with parsnips in a sweet, buttery glaze spiked with dry mustard.
