TODAY’S AMAZING FACT:
Babe Ruth, who was born on this day in 1895, used to tuck cold cabbage leaves under his baseball cap to keep cool while playing baseball. According to a 1928 newspaper article, "He obtained a head of cabbage, put it in the Yankees' water coolers, and between innings inserted ice-cooled cabbage leaves between his thinking pot and the sun. And the Yankees had to drink water flavored with cabbage to suit the Babe's idea."
Cabbage, in its rough and flat form, could be used as a metaphor for Portugal’s rustic ways. Think of the Calda Verde soup that's so basic in Portguese cuisine. Because of this importance, Bordallo many times depicted the cabbage in his work. This dinnerware was a clever way to honour it, by making it nice enough for the tables of the bourgeois families, who at one time would have considered the common cabbage too lowly to serve.
