Saturday Smiles: Escarole, etcetera,Santa Barbara Farmers Market

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We loved seeing this bright escarole.  For those of you who do not know what escarole is here is the definition from Spruce Eats, Escarole (pronounced "es-ka-roll") is a leafy green vegetable and member of the chicory family along with frisée, endive, and Belgian endive. Like other chicories, it is popular in Italian cuisine and can be served either raw or cooked.

This sighting of pink radishes was a first for us. It looked lovely between the celery root and celery...

The green onions were perfectly arranged among the rainbow carrots.

And last but not least is one of our favorites, the bright green romanesco (aka Roman Cauliflower) among the gold and purple cauliflowers.  For those of you who know math, romanesco exemplifies the Fibonaci sequence In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers, commonly denoted Fₙ form a sequence, called the Fibonacci sequence, such that each number is the sum of the two preceding ones, starting from 0 and 1. That is, and for n > 1. One has F₂ = 1. Wikipedia.

 

It also exemplifies fractal concept. A fractal is a never-ending pattern. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. They are created by repeating a simple process over and over in an ongoing feedback loop. Driven by recursion, fractals are images of dynamic systems – the pictures of Chaos.

 

Wishing you all an abundance of  Saturday Smiles and a delightful Sunday.  Cheers!

Nina Hollander Those radishes are good pan fried also.  And the Romanesco is so beautiful and so perfectly created, it is a work of art in my opinion.  A

Romanesco cauliflower is a cross between broccoli and standard cauliflower. You'll find Romanesco has a nutty flavor, and each head is covered in whimsical coral-like whorls of pointy, lime-green florets. Use this veggie to add color and visual drama to salads, side dishes, cruditès and entrées.

H Alexandra... I think I'd have eaten up all the radishes before the frying pan got hot enough! The romanesco is so beautiful it is like a work of art... would almost hate cutting it up.

Nina Hollander I cut it in half and cook it that way.  It is so good, even raw as you can separate the florets.  The half is big enough for the two of us.  A
