Chou Frisť - Curly Kale in Lausanne

Hi all,
I have been looking for a while now for curly kale. In french it's name is Chou frisť, but when I found, and tried, one at the local migros, I found that what they call Chou frisť here is something completely different. Does anyone know where I could get the real stuff?

It should look like this, and not like a simple cabbage:

Thanks for any help

Re: Chou Frisť - Curly Kale in Lausanne

I spent the second half of december hunting for it. The correct french name is chou laciniť. I was never able to find it in any of the big stores, but if there is an open air food market, they might be able to help you. I found it at the market here in Fribourg.

Re: Chou Frisť - Curly Kale in Lausanne

Hi,

My small local market in Bottmingen and the large market in Basel have lots of kale at the moment, so it is definitely in season. Both green and purple varieties. I tried it this week for the first time in years and it was really fresh and tasty. Lovely steamed for a couple of minutes then tossed in a little butter and lemon juice.

Hope you are able to find some.

You will probably have to ask for it in the market in Lausanne.

I think it might be out of season now. Most of the little shops around here that had it in December don't have it any more.
