I made it to the Mill City Farmer’s Market one more time before it closed last weekend. I wrote about it in August and at the time was most delighted that I had finally found squash blossoms.
The surprise of my October trip was this vegetable called Romanesco.
I’ve never seen it before but love the name and the appearance. It looks like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower. The guy told me it is best roasted. Out of curiosity, I tried a fresh bite first and I would say that it tasted like cauliflower but a little sweeter. The texture is very much like cauliflower. So, I followed recommendations and roasted it with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. It was really delicious. I recommend trying it if you find any at your farmer’s market.
Breads and Pastries from Solomon’s Bakery in Minneapolis
I’ll try to get back early in the spring next year to see what I can find then. Here are a few other images from my trip.
These breads and sweets are from The Salty Tart, also in Minneapolis.
