It's not often we get to welcome a new species of vegetable into the wider world, but we are proud today to announce the birth of brand new baby Brassica Oleracea: Welcome kalettes! Proud papa Brussels sprouts and tired-but-doing-well mama kale gave us this fusion of nutty and sweet. Here, the kalettes are served with a succulent pork chop topped with a compound butter of mustard and thyme. All this combines for a meal delicious and new.
