Shocking culinary news from the UK’s Guardian newspaper today.
First up. Brits, it seems, have abandoned Brussels Sprouts in favour of more exotic broccoli. Sprouts, apparently, have been used as a pricing indicator for the state of the UK economy since 1947. This year though they are being dropped and being replaced by Brocolli and – God forbid – zucchini (though the Brits call them courgettes).
Surely not enough British readers have discovered sprouts sauteed with garlic or Alice Waters style. I’m all for a new campaign to restore Brussels sprouts to their rightful place at the top of the good food chain.
How do you cook yours?
