isn't the romanesco the most beautiful vegetable in all the land?

parboiled romanesco plus shrip
i mean, isn't this the most beautiful thing on the planet?!

Fibonacci sequences appear in biological settings, such as branching in trees, the fruitlets of a pineapple, an uncurling fern and the arrangement of a pine cone. In addition, numerous poorly substantiated claims of Fibonacci numbers or golden sections in nature are found in popular sources, e.g. relating to the breeding of rabbits, the spirals of shells, and the curve of waves. (wikipedia.org)

the most perfect vegetable on the planet! nerd that i am, i lovelovelove fractals, especially the mandelbrot set, the julia set and the fibonacci number (golden spiral).

c'mon! how could you not ABSOLUTELY ADORE something so clearly structured, logical and easy to understand for a non-mathematician (but somewhat nerdy girl) like me?!
i don't even have a recipe for this parboiled romanesco plus shrimp, i just wanted to update again with a few pictures ... i have been relapsing like crazy for a few weeks now - but don't pity me, i'm already on the road to recovery.

so here it goes: another photo-lovestory!
well, at least i can offer you a tiny sign of life out of my kitchen :)

Wow, that is really pretty. But I think it might also have something to do with your amazing photography skills! Nice job :)
