I felt the Gorgonzola completely masked the flavor of the fennel and did not go well with the licorice taste of the fennel at all.
This was the first time I ever cooked fennel. We have always eaten it thinly sliced and very cold as an appetizer. I followed the directions except had to add a bit more broth and cook longer because I used a simmer that was too slow. We served it with a slice of left over pizza and it was a great combination. I plan to serve it at Christmas to surprise the children.
I personally loved the combination of the gorgonzola and fennel. My husband found it to be a winner too. I prepared it for some friends and well some loved it, others didn't like the combination of the cheese with fennel, but I think it's because they aren't fennel fans to begin with....
This was an excellent and easy use of Fennel. We topped this with a mix of Gorgonzola and Feta with Fresh Garlic. The Feta helped tone down the Gorgonzola and allowed the delicate sweet Ainse flavor of the fennel to come through.
