Broccoli spheres anyone?

Written by Bob Batz Jr. on

I've long enjoyed the writings of Big Burrito Executive Chef Bill Fuller, and his column in this month's Eat.big newsletter is another keeper, as he muses on a much-maligned vegetable, which I started seeing on the stalks last week at local farmers markets. Among his findings:

"5. Don’t tell your kids that their name is Brussels sprouts. I made this error and, if a time machine is invented in my life, I will go back and correct that moment. 'Broccoli Spheres' seems like it could work."

I just missed Chef this morning on WYEP, where at 7:30 a.m. on Fridays he offers food "Pairings" to go with Cindy Howes' music picks. Cool.
