Experimental Radicchio Art

Beating Radicchio Heartpicture photograph image animated gif radichio 2008 copyright of sam breach http://becksposhnosh.blogspot.com/ Via a Skype conversation earlier today, my mother accused me of buying this Radicchio* for its looks alone. So I thought I had better eulogize it on account of its beauty.




*At least I think this is a Radicchio, if it is something else please don't hesitate to correct me.


QUESTION OF THE DAY graphic copyright sam breach

    It's glorious. May it rest in peace.
    Did you photo it on a purple sari?

    Just beautiful. What do the fates have in store for your gloriously beating friend?

    PS, thanks for your blog - its a daily ritual to scan across my RSS feeds to see if you have anything new.

    hmmm. what fate? good question. Prefer the look to the taste, but maybe braised or grilled or grilled AND braised will allow me to enjoy...? Maybe in chicken broth with a little parmigiano? Or should I just bury her in a little radicchio-shaped coffin?

    Cookie - no sari. They are out multi-coloured napkins which I am sure you have made use of in the past. In this installation the green and dark purple ones are being used. We also have red, yellow, orange and mauve too.

    PS. - they are starting to wear out and accumulate holes and frays.

    ...but I love them nonetheless. Napkins for life.

    A splendid example of Radicchio di Treviso, I'd say. For me, it almost always begins and ends with braised and the paired with pasta, or used as a risotto base. Predictable ...

    An intriguing alternative is to deep fry it. Cut it in half, then in strips with the bottom root still holding it together (as much as this is possible), then dip in your favorite batter and fry. Pretty good stuff, and quite spectacular looking. Bit of a mess in the kitchen.

    Love the bitterness of radicchio, especially paired with melted cheese in pasta or risotto. How did it perish?

    Now I'm totally craving grilled radicchio. Preferably dressing a perfectly seared steak. With frites alongside.

    This is not, in any way, a bad thing.
