What's fresh now at the market? Romanesco

Take a head of broccoli, tint it lime green and decorate it with spires and minarets and you've got Romanesco.

So distinctive-looking is the Romanesco that its structure has been studied by avant-garde architects for new models of buildings (it's sometimes called fractal broccoli). Actually, Romanesco isn't really a broccoli at all. It's a cauliflower. Click here for details about how to choose, store and prepare romanesco.

Fascinating! Never heard of it. I am not a cook at all, which is why I love reading the Daily Dish. It's like a different world to me!
