Preheat oven to 180 C. Clean the fennel and cut in half lengthways. Season and pan fry to a golden brown in some butter. Place into a baking dish. Mix the wine, cream and honey together and pour over the fennel. Cover and place in the oven for 1 hour. Remove after 50 minutes and grate the parmesan over the top, place into the oven for another 10 minutes. Mix the chopped parsley, fennel and lemon zest together. In a pan, on a low heat, place the olive oil, garlic, and sliced chorizo. Slowly pan fry this and be careful not to burn it. It will only take a couple of minutes. Remove the fennel from the oven and scatter over the chorizo and garlic olive oil. A big squeeze of lemon and sprinkle with the herbs and zest.

Serve with crusty bread or on some fresh pasta, or both!

This is also a lovely accompaniment to fish.
