Fractal vegetable

Its a Romanesco broccoli up close and fractal. Just like a sunflower heart, it is a true example of mathematics in nature.


I think it is a striking vegetable - I crave novelty in food, so bought two for a Sunday roast. I steamed them lightly and served them naked, unfettered by cheese sauce.


No bugger touched them. Had the lot meself. I smelled faintly rancid for a week.
