"Non-cooks think it's silly to invest two hours' work in two minutes' enjoyment; but if cooking is evanescent, so is the ballet."
-Julia Child, Genius
With a lot of greens I like to use a bit of sweetness, especially when the greens are bitter, as with arugula or others like spinach or collards. Sometimes I will use just a touch of maple syrup because there’s a smoky, umami flavor. Arugula is more delicate and the honey is a better choice. It’s easy to overdo it so I always use a measuring spoon.
Known as Rocket (or Roquette) this is a member of the same family as cabbages and cresses. Arugula is pungent and spicy with a slightly peppery flavor. It is an essential ingredient in the Provençal mixed greens, mesclun.
Shop for arugula that is bright green with a soft texture. The younger leaves are not as spicy and I avoid very large leaves because they can be more bitter and tough.
