>romanesque the fractal broccoli


What is this light green vegetable which delights a Paris market shopper, which prompts musings of the Fibonacci sequence...?

It's romanesque, or romanesque broccoli, the “fractal vegetable”.

Its geometric sequence is mesmerizing, discernible even in tiny little pieces.

With its firm texture and taste reminiscent of young broccoli or cauliflower, it held its own among absolutely gorgeous itty-bitty vegetables in the burrata and gnocchi dish I mentioned in the previous post. A vegetable to savor? Precisely.
