Radical Radicchio

Radical Radicchio

Have you been introduced to radicchio? It's a humble veggie that's purple in colour and spicy in taste and it's just the kind of big-flavoured thing we think you should be cooking with. Raddichio is a particulary common ingredient in Italian cusine, where it's favoured for its bitter crunch. Stefano uses it in his recipes to add both colour to the plate and leafy, crunchy texture to the dish.

It works to dress up his green salad or to create a stunning contrast to this big, grilled steak. And if you don't cook much with bitter vegetables, you can learn some neat tricks to temper their flavour here.
