I have always been intrigued by the festive vibe of the Hasselback preparation, a cutting technique. With just a little extra effort, and some basic knife moves, you end up with something that looks surprisingly impressive at the table.
Traditionally made with potato, this slightly involved yet very cool to behold dish makes winter squash a star. I found a lovely version of this recipe in Bon Appétit, and altered the glaze to include wintery flavors of citrus and pomegranate with some added spice and a zesty garnish. Here’s to a happy and healthy new year, Hasselback-style.
