Not just your average leafy green.....
I'm starting a bit of a detox post Thanksgiving, and, while Bok Choy has not been high on my go to veggie list in the past it sure as hell is about to be! It reads like a veritable super food full of anti-oxidants and packed full of various and sundry vitamins too numerous to mention here (after all this blog is more about how the food looks painted than anything else...)
Last year leading up to The Royal Winter Fair I went on a bit of an agricultural food painting binge and the veiny leaves of bok choy really grabbed my interest, the two above are little 6"x6" squares, the ones below, done a bit later are 6"x8"
I'm not sure if I'm going to include my Culinary Encaustics in this years Royal exhibition, but I most certainly will be including these dark green leaves in a meal or two over the next few weeks of more mindful and sensible eating..
