Romanesco Broccoli is one of the most beautiful of all the Brassicas. The stunning Fibonacci spirals that comprise the 'curds' make real statement on any plate. Broken into individual spirals, Romanesco makes a great, sweet, raw dipping ingredient. A light steaming or a quick boil is the best way to bring out the delicate flavour of your stunning, home-grown, Romanesco broccoli.
