Kale loves to be in the company of garlic, pork ginger and rich oils. Long simmering brings out an amazing dimension in its flavor profile. The kale collapses in the pan and then swells as it cooks. This method will create a nourishing sweet "pot liquor" that will yield the need for bread to sop up its every juice. Their are many vitamins in that pot liquor to so make sure to use it all.
A cool weather annual, kale's cold-hardy personality makes its flavor even sweeter after a light frost.
