I found “rainbow carrots” at Hyde Park Produce the other day, and decided on the spot that I needed to purchase a large bag of them. They taste and cook just like any other carrots, but are beautiful enough to be served at a dinner party and fun enough to spruce up an otherwise boring lunch or dinner.
