Fresh Seasonal Radicchio (Unit)

£1.89

Radicchio is one of the most iconic Italian vegetables, with a nutty taste than its wine-red leaves.

In Italy, Radicchio is classically added to risottos and tomato sauces or simply grilled and dressed in olive oil. The bitter flavour pairs well with sweet sour, fatty and salty accompaniments such as citrus, pear, pomegranate, tomato, balsamic vinegar, walnuts, anchovies, cream based dressings and sauces, candied pecans, salted meats such as bacon and salami, black pepper and provolone, parmesan and gorgonzola cheeses.

Fresh Seasonal Fennel (unit)

£1.79

Fennel is one of the most underutilised vegetables, but is crunchy and has a sweet and anise-like flavour. This fresh vegetable can be eaten in various ways. When raw, its crisp texture is similar to celery and perfect in a salad. Fennel caramelises when it is cooked and it gets a sweeter and tender taste. It can also be roasted or added to soups or sauces. 

Don\'t know what to do with the leaves? They can be chopped up and used to flavour hot and cold dishes just like other herbs. 

The perfect combination is a pasta or risotto with fennel. It can also give your pizza that extra flavour you\'ve been looking for.
