Thanks to previous reviews, a few adjustments made this absolutely delicious. I reduced the fennel seeds to 1/2 tsp, and the flavour was well balanced and delicate. I used verjuice instead of wine, and goat cheese feta instead of parmesan, just because that's what I had available on the day. Slow cooked on High for 5 hrs - this was too long. Next time will go no more than 4 hrs to avoid the slight glugginess.
