A secret to an impressive meal? Make a simple main dish, roast chicken, for example, and dress it up with an elegant vegetable side, some really good bread, and some fancy cheese. Add a great bottle of wine, and you've just outsourced a whole lot of impressing. These braised veggies are fancy in all the right ways: soft and slick, fragrant from the fennell, but they're easy enough for anyone to pull off. Get the recipe on Food52.
