Wombok in Australia, Napa cabbage in the US, Chinese cabbage the world over! A member of the brassica family popular in Asian style cuisines, the leaves are lighter, more delicate and less waxy than the average cabbage. Wombok has a crisp, mild and slightly sweet flavour and is good eaten both raw and cooked.
