Leftovers Make the Perfect Family Meal

Leftovers: This is what Family Meal is all about at Food Network Kitchens. It's important that we limit the amount of wasted food in the kitchens. This past week, we had multiple meals left over: some jerk chicken from a dinner we hosted for one of our cable partners, grilled meats from a lunch meeting we held with the digital department and some fennel from Anne Burrell's satellite media tour. Miriam, the Throwdown queen, roasted the fennel with lemon, olive oil and salt and pepper, then finished it off with Parmesan breadcrumbs. It was so good — I ate it and I don't even like fennel. (Try Giada's Roasted Fennel recipe at home.) So even though we get swamped with various types of projects, we're grateful that they help make Family Meals happen.
