Belgian Endive

chicoryEndive was discovered in 1830′s Belgium by a farmer returning from war with chicory roots which were used as a coffee substitute. In the root cellar, the chicory sprouted tender white leaves (“Witloof”), which consequently became all the rage in Parisian cuisine. The wonderful Chicory family includes an array of sophisticated flavors: red, white and curly endive, escarole, frisee, tardivo and radiccchio.
