What The Heck Do I Do with This Romanesco Cauliflower?

Romanesco cauliflower, also known as Roman cauliflower or romanesco broccoli, is one of the most artistic vegetables we’ve ever encountered. With an approximated fractal design, each bud in the spiral veggie is composed of a series of smaller spirals. Romanesco is very similar to cauliflower in both texture and taste, though it is a bit nuttier and earthier in flavor. While roasting is a great go-to way to cook this beauty, we have 10 knockout recipes for you to try—if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one.

I WANT to continue misfit market but somehow you haven’t been able to include my space number on my application.
Shipping just drops box ANYWHERE because you did not include my space #23 ….I cannot get box unless you put my space #23 like I signed up for…Management isn’t okay with this so take me off the list if it can’t be added

Hi there,
Aside from the pears the fruits that I have chosen
have been uneatable ( mango and apples) one of
The 2 red apples that I received on my last box
appeared mushy, I had to throw it out it was rotten.
If an item appears rotten can they not include in the box?
The mango from my first box was also rotten , how ever
one could not tell by looking at it, could it be because they are
out of season??. Is there a way to know that
before choosing certain items ?
I do appreciate what you guys are doing, I just
want to know how to better choose my items.
