Sharma finds the anise flavor of fennel seeds works well in a variety of sweet and savory recipes. Let the seeds caramelize in the Upside-Down Orange and Fennel Cornmeal Cake (p. 216), try it in the Fennel and Ginger-Spiced Sweet Granola (p. 91) or let it find its meaty match in the recipe for Crispy Pork Belly Bites (p. 54).
Use fennel seeds in Julia Turshen's Roast Chicken with Fennel, Rosemary + Lemon (p. 174) and the Spicy Pork Sausage Patties (p. 166).
