Eating Mystery: Romanesco
Last night we ate the last of the brassica in the garden that is a cross between broccoli and cauliflower, Romanesco. It is an incredible vegetable, milder than either broccoli or cauliflower, and sweeter. But most amazing is its fractile pattern: each pointed treelike protrusion is full of identical smaller treelike protrusions, which again are full of the protrusions, into infinity. To partake of this masterpiece of a veggie is to eat mystery.
