Cabbage is one of the most versatile vegetables around. You can eat it raw, pickled, fermented or cooked, as in these Japanese pancakes (above). There’s even a cabbage dish called rumbledethumps which is definitely the best dish name ever. (It’s a Scottish mashed potato and cabbage bake.)
I thought it was time to see what Melbourne thinks about cabbage so we made it the topic of this week’s food chat. It was a very popular subject! Lots of people have very strong cabbage opinions and the talkback lines ran hot.
