Gremolata or gremolada is a chopped herb condiment classically made of lemon zest, garlic and parsley. It is a traditional accompaniment to the Milanese braised veal shank dish ossobuco alla milanese.
Basically, it’s a special form of vegan pesto or a take on chimichurri – but better.
The extra crunch and savory addition of the bread crumbs pushes the zesty condiment all into it’s own category of goodness.
As it becomes one of those things we being to crave, one we’ve indulged once or twice, an afternoon dedicated to whipping up our own batch becomes extremely valuable.
Although traditionally served alongside meal dishes, we are always bucking tradition and pushing the limits in the kitchen. Valerie introduced me to gremolata a top soup – good, creamy, nourishing soup.
And now there’s no going back.
