Anche nella mia famiglia è diffusa l'abitudine di gustare il finoccchio a fine pasto per una paicevole freschezza :-))


Hi Simona! We call this "fin-oik".
Oh how we love to mess up the proper Italian language! haha


I just cooked with some fennel the other day~it is a wonderful veggie!


Very nice! I didn't know it was called Florence fennel either. Thank you so much for taking part to the event!!!!

The soup sounds lovel;y, so fresh and vibrant. Great with your cheese on top too.


Ohhh Thank you so much for reminding me the delight of fennel!Im now dying to try this really lovely recipe aswell as returning to the fresh salad for warmer days to come! Grazie!


Very nice. I like fennel, though I don't eat it a lot.


Simona Carini

Ciao Lenny. Che bello sapere che certe abitudini piacevoli sono diffuse.

That is so cute, Maryann.

Indeed, it is Jann.

You are welcome, Marta: it is always fun.

It is very nice, Lori Lynn and you are right: the color is vibrant.

Prego, Mia. Where I live, we get cool evenings in the summer when a nice soup is perfect.

Thanks, Paz.


ciao Simona...tutto bene in quel di SF e dintorni? zuppa di finocchio? non ne ho mai fatto una...sarà il caso di provare, ciaooo!

Simona Carini

Ciao Astro. Qui tutto bene, grazie. La zuppa di finocchio e' proprio buona: te la consiglio. Un abbraccio.

Ah, fennel. Next to artichokes, it must just be my favorite vegetable. My favorite combination is with sweet oranges and salty olives.


Fennel... the forgotten veg in our house. I love it - when I think of buying it, particularly in summer. It goes so well with barbecued foods... I think they hide it at the markets....

Simona Carini

Hi Susan. I also love artichokes and grew up eating them. I remember reading about this salad on your blog. My mother often makes a salad with oranges and olives: it is a delicious combination.

Hi Katie. Fennel with barbecued foods sounds great. I hope you can get the sellers at the market to share their bounty with you.


I love sliced fennel, red onions, fresh tomatoes, and a vinaigrette of olive oil and wine vinegar. Salt and pepper as you like. It's so quick and easy and very pretty too. A perfect summer salad.

Simona Carini

I completely agree, Lisa.
