“Got this at the Bloomingdale Farmer’s market last weekend — it was surprisingly DELICIOUS roasted — but don’t know what it is; it seems like a cauliflower/broccoli hybrid, but I am curious about the name. We dubbed it “The Thing That Came From the Deep” but maybe a PoP knows its real name?”

Hmm, I thought it might be a bread fruit. But then of course I remembered my days of field botany at Miami University and knew it must be a Broccoli Romanesque.

Actually the reader found out it was Broccoli Romanesque, I just like to brag about my training in field botany…

Has anyone tried a Broccoli Romanesque before?
