Is there really only one Google hit for "nomanomicron"?
Not any more.
When I mentioned where I lived to a colleague in Chicago, he said he still remembered staying at the Madonna Inn in the '70s, even which room. I said it was about 30 minutes from my house, but near the place I get Tubby's food.
It's called Romanesco broccoli. And it's made of fractals!
I put mixed it into a pasta dish with loads of cream cheese, so I have not idea what it tastes like.
The only thing I really noticed is it had a crispier texture, closer to cauliflower.
