Sea Kale appeared in Thomas Jefferson's Garden Book of 1809, and it was
served at the Prince Regent's Royal Pavilion in Brighton. The shoots
are served like asparagus: steamed, with either a béchamel sauce
or melted butter, salt and pepper. It is apt to get bruised or damaged
in transport and should be eaten very soon after cutting, this may
explain its subsequent decline in popularity.
