I bought some broccolo romano the other day at the grocery store not only to make a pasta dish with them, but primarily to photograph them. I’d never seen anything other than plain old broccoli until moving here, where you’ll find a whole host of broccoli and cauliflower like vegetable that are commonly used here. Just look at them, it’s like an edible fractal just begging you to photograph it. I knew that the fractal pattern and bumpy texture would make for an interesting image, so I cleared off my sink and set up a little portable reading light I have to create some shadow and drama in the photo. Now I’m hungry! Just how do I eat them? Generally I’ll cut them up and sauté them in a pan and then have them over fresh egg pasta or orecchiette with a bit of pecorino, but that’s just me (and it’s the easiest thing to do).
