Made with a range of grains, gruel has become fashionable, thanks to restaurants like England's The Fat Duck, where the tasting menu recently featured an oat porridge crowned with snails, Iberian ham, and shaved fennel. This hearty porridge from chef Yoni Levy of San Francisco's Alta CA restaurant is bolstered by roasted vegetables and enlivened with a salsa of turnip greens. This recipe first appeared with the 2015 SAVEUR 100 item Porridge for Dinner.
