WHAT IS RADICCHIO?

A diverse family of bitter greens in the cichorium genus, we are using the names chicory and radicchio interchangeably to describe dozens of varieties at once. Named for villages around the Veneto in which they are grown, chicories are colorful, sweet, and bitter; they lend a unique flavor to any dish, and are prepared in traditional ways around the Mediterranean.

Here in Seattle, we are lucky to be surrounded by several farms growing this beautiful crop successfully.  As they gain in popularity, taking a well-deserved place at the vogue produce table, chicories are still shrouded in an air of mystery: how to grow? what varieties to choose? how to best prepare? We want to answer your questions, and couldn’t do it in one day; thus, Chicory Week was born.
