Braised Brussels Sprouts, Quirky Cooking

Braised Brussels Sprouts and Second Chances

I was in my early twenties, and having grown up in Lebanon, Brussels sprouts were new to me. It certainly was not a culinary revelation. For many years, I avoided the vegetable, deterred by its sulphurous smell and the soggy memory of our first encounter. But this is why forgiveness and second chances are so important.
