Produce tidbits:

– The cauliflower was damaged in the freezing weather we had a while back. It caused some browning on the surface, but it is freshly picked and the flavor is still good. Same with the romanesco.
– Romanesco is quite psychedelic looking. Its spiraled buds form a natural approximation of a fractal, meaning each bud in the spiral is composed of a series of smaller buds. The spirals follow the same logarithmic pattern as the Fibonacci sequence. You can prepare romanesco just like cauliflower or broccoli—raw or cooked—but it still has its own unique flavor.
