Urban landscape architecture as a source of new recipes

Urban agriculture in Saint-Etienne

Saint-Étienne public landscape architecture featuring curly and red kales, fennel and bananas. Based upon this planter I can imagine a dessert Stephanoise: a bed of flash fried caramelised kales with banana fritters and sprinkled finally with powdered sugar and pulverised fennel seeds.

It’s daring from a planting point of view as wel, red kale and bananas, but why the heq not? I’m diggin the ready steady cook factor of this planter…

  1. Debra…. you’ve finally pushed me too far and I can’t stay quiet any longer. Caramelised kale criques with banana fritters and fennel seeds? Municipal planting Ready Steady Cook? You are a creative and culinary supernova. This has been my favourite website ever since I stumbled across you a year ago. You have restored my excitement about a craft that was becoming stale after too many years as someone else’s line cook; thank you for your inspiration, your opinion, your humour, your astonishing imagination.

    That’s all. I’ll shut up again now.
