jamie’s aubergine parmigiana

July 28, 2009

When I was working at a farm in Limoges, France last summer, I ate a lot of wonderful food. One for the things I remember most was the eggplant parmigiana. Planning to make it for myself for a long time, I finally got around to it a few weeks ago. The recipe I got from Jamie Oliver. I followed it pretty much to a t, except I did salt the aubergines first and I added mozzarella in between the layers. The recipe can be found here. So I won’t copy the recipe here, but instead I’ll share some pictures of the process (which my mum took as I was making the dish).

    I made this one year, it was so much work! I am not sure what recipe I used. Oh here it is: http://catseatsocks.livejournal.com/188518.html Um, your’s looks a lot better.

      I found this very simple to make. It takes a while to salt the aubergines (though jamie doesn’t say to do that), and griddle them, but all in all, well worth all the delicious effort! Try this recipe Mel!

    Ahhh stop the madness! Eggplant is terrible 😛 So terrible it doesn’t deserve called the cute aubergine.

      K! I can’t believe my ears, terrible? eggplant? You should definitely make this recipe. It will prove you wrong.

    I will agree with the “eggplant is terrible”. 😛 At least on its own, but I can enjoy it enough as a parmesan when it smothered (potenitally)in breading and mozzerella cheese with sauce. I prefer zucchini/courgette parmesan over it, though! Mmmm zucchini…
