Sensual Vegetables

Posted in Uncategorized by m.snowe on January 5, 2010


At the beginning, his urgings were gentle. … But I kept demurring despite his coaxing.

Finally, he insisted, pressing a fat, taut root vegetable into my hands. “Just take it and try it,” he said. “I’ll bet you anything you’ll be back for more.”

Thus began my new obsession…


Harlequin romance? The new bodice-ripping vampire novel? Nope. That would be an excerpt from “A Good Appetite,” a regular New York Times column about food, written by Melissa Clark. This particular piece is about the rutabaga, and titled “The Best Vegetable You’ve Never Tried.”

Thanks, Ms. Clark. We’ll be sure to pop our rutabaga cherry good and quick.

    Rutabaga-cherry? Sounds like a delicious PIE.

      That probably tastes peppery, tart and naughty.
