Consider The Corn and Potato

Consider The Corn and Potato
“Usually corn and potatoes are considered common, some might even say lowly, but on the first weekend of August the residents of North Branford (CT) elevate the two starchy staples to extraordinary heights. In its eleventh year, the Potato and Corn Festival now brings tens of thousands of visitors over three days to the typically sleepy farm town.”

Consider The Onion – 11

Consider The Onion - 11
“Common onions are normally available in three colours: yellow, red, and white. Yellow onions, also called brown onions, are full-flavoured and are the onions of choice for everyday use. Yellow onions turn a rich, dark brown when caramelized and give French onion soup its sweet flavour. The red onion is a good choice for fresh use when its colour livens up the dish. It is also used in grilling and char-broiling. White onions are the traditional onions that are used in classic Mexican cuisine. They have a golden colour when cooked and a particularly sweet flavour when sautéed.”

Consider The Romanesco - 3
“Romanesco, also known as Romanesque cauliflower or Romanesco broccoli, is an edible flower bud of the species Brassica oleracea. First documented in Italy, it is light green in color. Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal. When compared to a traditional cauliflower, as a vegetable its texture is far more crunchy, and its is flavour is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.”
