Will It Roast? ‘Will It Roast?’ is a new celebration of culinary silliness, created in the name of simply messing around in the kitchen, a chance to try out some random ideas that come into my head. In this series I’m taking whole fruit or vegetables and cooking them in their entirety in the oven without chopping, peeling, slicing or preparing them, to see how they come out.

WILL IT ROAST In an entirely new celebration of culinary silliness and in the name of simply messing around in the kitchen, I’ve started a series of videos called WILL IT ROAST. Inspired by a recipe I saw in the NOPI cookbook last year, I’ve started this new series to experiment with vegetables and fruits which aren’t normally roasted whole, to see what happens. If you’ve ever wondered “why am I chopping this up” when preparing vegetables, now is the time to find out! Part One In the first of this series, I’m taking a big butternut squash, leaving it in the oven to cook for a while and seeing how it comes out.
