This beauty is in the allotment at St.James's Park, London. It's almost hidden away, (near the restaurant) if you dont know the park very well. It is so worth a visit. It's only there until the end of September - some wonderful ideas for use in our small gardens, including a wormery, (http://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/) a bee home, and lots of interesting veg. All the plants look just wonderful.
Quick regular cabbage recipe: Shred cabbage leaves fairly finely, remove stalks if wanted, put in boiling, salted water and cook till just tender, drain, toss in a little garlic and butter or good olive oil. Season with S&P.
Tip: Put a bayleaf or three in with the veg. as it boils - it stops that awful old boiled veggie smell. This will work very well with any green veg.
