Braise the fennel for the first hour (step 1) up to 24 hours in advance. Cool, then separate from the liquid and chill both separately, covered. Continue with the recipe from step 2.
This recipe makes a lovely starter on its own, but it would also be good as part of a buffet or served as a side dish for grilled meat or chicken.
Choose a dry sherry such as fino, or a modern Spanish white such as verdejo.
