On my recent trip to Washington DC we visited &Pizza; a cool local pizza chain that constructs and cooks an oval shaped pizza in front of you with whatever you like on it. After my pizza was cooked I asked for ‘rocket’ to be sprinkled over it, as you do, only to be met with blank stares. My work colleague came to the rescue and told me it’s called arugula in the US. That was the first time I’d heard that name.

Arugula: one of my favourite things.
