“[Kale] is also synonymous with Scotland because it can survive a harsh Scottish winter and I can wander into my snow-clad garden and the only thing visible are the tops of the vibrant green leaves thrusting through the icy carpet. Indeed, like the brussels sprout, the flavour changes from a mild to a more spicy flavour after it has been frosted, when some of the starch has been converted to sugar. The deeply intense flavours marry well with spices, nuts and fruit.”
