Farmer's Market Discovery
Look at this beauty! I totally freaked out when I saw it. I love the geometric repetitions. This is a romanesco, a cauliflower originating from Italy that has been commerciallly available in Europe since 1990. I roasted this with some German Butterball potatoes and spicy Spanish paprika for a simple vegetable dish. It's really great when ingredients are of quality because you don't have to do much to it.
I also got some swiss chard and kale. The chard caught my eye with its beautiful red stems and tinted leaves. I was very happy with the high quality of both greens because this was going to be my first time cooking them, which means I needed all forces on my side. I followed a simple recipe from Orangette and voila...
