Trevisano May Be the Best Vegetable You've Never Grilled

J. Kenji López-Alt 12 comments

You've never grilled trevisano or radicchio? I don't blame you. I pity you, but I don't blame you. They're both hearty bitter lettuces, and they both become remarkably sweet and succulent when charred over a live fire. Served with a drizzle of good olive oil and saba—a sweet wine-based condiment—along with a sprinkle of gorgonzola cheese, it's the best vegetable you've never grilled. More

Pizza With Sausage and Radicchio

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

The first time I had radicchio on a pizza was about a decade ago in the old converted barn that my good friend and food writer Deborah Krasner calls home, up in Putney, Vermont. I still remember her exact words, because I didn't believe them at the time: "The leaves become just wonderfully sweet when they're roasted and charred," she said. In what was, at that point, my very limited experience, charring things always made them more bitter, not less. Luckily, she was right, I was wrong, and deliciousness ensued. More

Make-Ahead Farro with Radicchio, Prosciutto and Orange

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer Post a comment

Sitting overnight gives the orange flavors time to permeate the dish, offset by salty, fatty prosciutto, bitter raddichio and balsamic. Farro is more than an afterthought here; every nutty grain absorbs bitter, tart and sweet flavors. More

Jim Lahey's Radicchio Salad

Caroline Russock 1 comment

In My Pizza, Jim Lahey has included recipes for many of the fabulous non-pizza menu items at his New York pizzeria Co., including this fascinating Radicchio Salad. It's a salad full of bitter, earthy flavors interspersed with creamy-pungent bites of Taleggio and bursts of sweet-sour balsamic vinegar. We're not quite sure how Lahey decided that radicchio, shiitakes, and Taleggio work on the same plate, but we're pretty pleased that he's passed along this unexpectedly but really quite wonderful combo to us.

Kale, Apple, and Pancetta Salad

Serious Eats Jennifer Segal 8 comments

With slightly bitter kale and radicchio, crispy-salty pancetta, tart apples and sweet maple syrup, this hearty winter salad hits all the right taste buttons. It's also just a beautiful salad.

Cook the Book: Bittersweet Salad

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 6 comments

The bittersweet-ness of this salad comes from the radicchio, sour blood orange segments, and tart pomegranate seeds dressed with a reduced orange-maple vinaigrette, which is really more of a syrup with a touch of aromatic orange flower water. The toasty pine nuts and little spoonfuls of creamy ricotta dolloped on top also complements the bitterness. More

Cook the Book: Sausage Salad with Radicchio and Frisée

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

By now we are all familiar with this simple fact: adding pork fat to virtually anything amps up the deliciousness factor tenfold. Usually it's bacon with all its flavorful grease—but what about other sorts of piggy additions? This recipe for Sausage Salad with Radicchio and Frisée from In the Kitchen with A Good Appetite by Melissa Clark is a play on a classic bacon vinaigrette using crumbled sausage where the cooking juices coat a bitter combination of radicchio and frisée.
