See 'romanesco' on black!


Found at the local supermarket yesterday: a -for me- new vegetable, called romanesco, seemingly a cross between cauliflower and broccoli. But foremost an interesting object with a shape and color reminding me of coral or outerworldly landscapes.

By the way, haven't tasted it yet!


This was the #1 photo by Flickr - Interesting on the date August 13th 2005.</a


epilogue (February 2006):

I never did taste it. The thing was too foreign for Luz to want to cook it. So instead, I photographed its demise during the following months. The process of this decay can be followed in the set Romanesco's Fall. Hopefully I'll get to eat it this year. If so, I'll let you guys know!


epi-epilogue (Oktober 2008): well, we did finally eat one! For the results see here and here
