Some varieties of dasheen can turn blue or indigo when cooked, hence the term — which now is used to describe all root crops, including sweet potato, cassava, and yam. During this Blue Food Festival, all of the dasheen plants is used to prepare a range of items — bread, cookies and sweets, ice-cream, and even lasagne!
