    Kohlrabi! My favorite vegetable.
    Try to boil it whole in beef stock, then slice it and lay the slices in a buttered baking dish. Make a sauce Mornay with the stock, cream, a bit of flour and butter, then some grated cheese (cheddar, gruyère, comté…). Shred some boiled ham and add it to the sauce. Pour sauce over kohlrabi. Optionally, grate some more cheese on top and dot with a bit more butter. Then bake until golden. You’ll never have a better gratin.

    well, that’s ok – when I am not wearing brown I am wearing purple but only if it is a called aubergine. I mean, there’s purple and then there’s purple.

    One of the best food photos I have ever seen, worthy of publication in the best of cookery books. I am humbled by your talent. Keep it up.

    Seeds for purple kohlrabi: Thompson & Morgan, Purple Danube (F1) and Johnny’s Seeds, kolibri (F1). Pine Tree also has kolibri. They have websites and print catalogs. These new hybrids have a delicate flavor so try them raw or lightly steamed. Same for the new all white turnip, Oasis, also an F1.
    Impeach Bush!

    best way to eat kohlrabi is to peel it, grate it and mix with some lemon juice and sour cream, salt & pepper for a refreshing salad. i wish you could buy it here in the UK – it’s incredibly hard to find!
