On this episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking, host Pete Evans heads to sunny Los Angeles, where he meets up with fellow Aussie chef Curtis Stone for an adventure in roasting a whole suckling pig. Along with chef Francis Derby, they pay a visit to Jimmy Williams of Logan’s Garden, organic-vegetable-garden-designer to the stars. The chefs then meet up to craft a flavorful menu, including Pete’s charred broccoli and cauliflower with herby green sauce, and Francis Derby’s mixed bean salad.

Recipes from this episode
The addition of radishes and fennel to this traditional British favorite contributes an aromatic dimension to the flavor along with a slightly crunchy texture. Serve it as a side with roast pork or chicken, or try adding a bowl of piccalilli to the table the next time you serve a cheese platter.
The only way to improve this salad would be to serve it in season with the freshest local beans you can get your hands on.
The delicious flavor of roasted cauliflower and broccoli cannot be overstated. If you have never indulged, you are in for a real treat. If you have, in this recipe the briny herb sauce adds a new dimension and brightens the warm flavors of the roasted vegetables.
