Using Food Fully: Carrots

USING FOOD FULLY is a recurring theme in Japanese kitchens. Project One spotlights CARROTS.

Create at least 3 dishes using carrots… to be served at the same meal, or spread across several days. The dishes can be savory, sweet, spicy… served piping hot, chilled, at room temperature…use peels, tops, scraps and trim from other dishes… featured dishes, side dishes, condiments, pickles…The dishes do NOT have to be Japanese.
