“Romanesco Salad is simple, delicious, and visually very lovely. While it looks like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower, Romanesco is actually an Italian heirloom dating back to ancient Rome (hence the name). It is also an edible fractal with each spiral bud being composed of a series of smaller spiral buds, arranged in a series of more logarithmic spirals, and perfect, albeit chaotic mathematical arrangement of vibrant, chartreuse-colored spiral buds, is precisely what makes Romanesco so captivating.” – Mandy Robertson Bora, Mandy’s VB6 Musings
