This morning I was at the Berkeley Farmers Market and spotted these beautiful spheres of vegetables. With the deep winter colors of purple and green, this is curly kale. Now, I'm not a big consumer of kale, curly or straight, but I just thought these curly kale balls looked so interesting. I'm sure they're probably good for hearty soups or braised anything. But when I look at them, I keep getting the feeling that the Barefoot Contessa would make table centerpieces out of them. Don'tcha think?
