Radicchio resembles a petite head of red cabbage producing variegated dark, burgundy leaves with contrasting white ribs. Growing from orange to grapefruit size and easy to peel, the smooth, crisp leaves offer a bitter flavor with a hint of spice. When cooked the vibrant burgundy color of the leaves fades to a deep brown hue, its bitter flavor is mellowed and rather takes on a subtle sweetness. Only occasionally is this type of chicory given a forced second growth, when utilized though this method will yield a Radicchio with a waxier sheen on its exterior leaves.
Radicchio is available year-round with a peak season mid-winter to early spring.
Radicchio, botanically classified as Cichorium intybus, is a perennial grown as an annual. A member of the Composite or Asteraceae family they are a subspecies of chicory. The name Radicchio applies to a group of chicories that have variegated leaves and come in various shapes and sizes. The most common grown in Italy today has a round shape and is also known as Red Leaf chicory, Red Italian chicory and in Italy as Radicchio Rosso di Chioggia or simply Radicchio Chioggia. It is also the most widely grown variety of Radicchio outside of Italy.
Cooking Radicchio brings out the vegetable's natural sweetness but it can also be served fresh. It can be chopped and sautéed or halved and grilled. Fresh leaves are sturdy enough to be used whole as a cup or wrap. In Italy Radicchio is classically added to risottos and tomato sauces or simply grilled and dressed in olive oil. The bitter flavor maries well with sweet, sour, fatty and salty accompaniments such as citrus, pear, pomegranate, tomato, balsamic vinegar, walnut oil, anchovies, cream based dressings and sauces, candied pecans, salted meats such as bacon and salami, black pepper and provolone, parmesan and gorgonzola cheeses. To store, keep dry and refrigerate for one to two weeks.
Dating back to the sixteenth century Radicchio originated in the Veneto region of northern Italy in the town of Chioggio, hence its full name Radicchio Rosso di Chioggia. A low-growing plant, Radicchio di Chioggia is a field grown type and unlike other chicories is only rarely forced or given a second growth period using imbiancamento methods. Cooler weather will yield a Radicchio with leaves that boast a more vibrant red hue. Radicchio is predominately grown in Italy with southern France following closely as the second largest producer. It can also be found growing in some parts of California, New Jersey and Mexico.
