I’ve never really been a great fan of Kale until recently. Kale has always been somewhat bitter. I was enjoying a wonderful evening with friends, pairing wines with food at The Cook’s Warehouse , where one of my favorite chefs, Nancy Waldeck was hosting her monthly Taste Club event. A Kale salad was served and I was surprised how delicious it was.
I asked Chef if she massaged her kale and she explained the reasons not to, “remove the stems”. I thought…well, removing each stem would be less or the same amount of time spent massaging the kale that included the stems, so why not?
