Presentation of the turnip
The turnip is an ancestral vegetable that was already consumed by the ancient Greeks and Romans. The turnip is also found very early in history in Asia. Unfortunately, for a long time this small vegetable was not appreciated at its fair value in Europe because it was considered a famine vegetable and was eaten by the poor in the Middle Ages. Fortunately in recent years the image of the turnip has evolved and it is now on the menu of the greatest chefs and many families who love this root vegetable. Often associated with carrots and leeks , it is also a must in Pot-au-feu, a great classic of French culinary art, and many other dishes cooked over low heat. It is more and more revisited and we find it today, for example, in crisps for an aperitif or even turnip ice cream!
