CultureColza

France has a wonderful variety of beauty - natural, man-made and somewhere in-between. One good example of 'somewhere in-between' is a colza field. Colza is a yellow variety of cabbage that is cultivated by farmers to make cooking oil.

What's so amazing about colza is that it can stimulate two senses simultaneously - sight, it's a bright deep yellow that only nature can create, and smell, a very sweet one; think of a smell resembling the taste of honey.

In Burgundy, colza fields seem to be everywhere, filling the countryside with bright, deep yellows and sweet smells. Spring is the time when a colza field is at its most beautiful. So, if you ever come across a sea of yellow, a colza field, in the French countryside, and it's April, stop and take a walk. Your nose and eyes will not be disappointed!
