We recently talked about our new discovery, lovage, which is an aromatic deeply flavoured herb and is just one of the many exciting ingredients we found in the amazing book “A Painter’s Kitchen – Recipes from the Kitchen of Georgia O’Keeffe”. So, today, we would like to share with you one of the recipes we’ve enjoyed using this herb and which is taken from that book.
Simply entitled Meatloaf, this is a classic in many culinary traditions around the world, but it’s more commonly related to American, German, Scandinavian and Belgian cuisines. Basically, all you need is minced meat, a few ingredients and a bit of love to shape the mixture into a beautiful loaf.
Meatloaf is a budget-friendly recipe because the minced meat can be made from a cheap beef cut or indeed from any other meat you have available – for example, venison or pork or lamb will work just as well. O’Keeffe’s tweak is to add some lovage, which gives the meatloaf an incredible aroma and a sweet flavour.
We just wanted to share her original recipe with you but we’ve added our little adaptations. We really hope you enjoy our cultural heritage in between the lines.
