Romanesco broccoli by angelikavr

Romanesco broccoli

Romanesco broccoli (also known as Roman cauliflower, Broccolo Romanesco, Romanesque cauliflower or simply Romanesco) is an edible flower bud of the species Brassica oleracea. First documented in Italy, it is chartreuse in color. Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal. When compared to a traditional cauliflower, its texture as a vegetable is far more crunchy, and its flavor is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.
The Romanesco has been grown in Italy since the 16th century.
I love broccoli and have never tried this. Although it looks far too beautiful to eat! Fav

An artistically presented vegetable, and a lesson in culinary heritage! You have such wonderful vegetable photos you could do a whole framed kitchen series!

Very nice photo. The lighting is great, and the old wood makes a nice contrast to the vibrant vegetable.

@jyokota Thank you Junko, that is my aim, a year of seasonal vegetables. I think most young people don’t even know anymore, when there is the right season for the specific vegetable. In the supermarkets everything is available all year round!

@angelikavr -- I know what you mean! But YOU are creating an entire calendar!! Say, I wonder if @domenicododaro needs month-dividing inserts in his almanac cookbook??
