  • Very Good
    Yummy side; good use of turnips. I used fresh parsley and fresh thyme; oak aged (inexpensive) Chardonnay; extra salt for my taste. A little less water; and a little more flour added; extra fresh garlic as well. Subbed a random hot sauce; and brown spicy mustard. All is good. - 12/14/09
