Lovely photos! And your trip sounds wonderful. I am eating a lot of radicchio lately, but can only find the round one (chioggia?) Especially like it with crisp bosc pears, mint, and some buttermilk dressing that is creamy but not heavy--a nice fall salad. Now I will expand to this dish, sounds delicious.

Thank you Sally. That variety is more suited for salads. I also like it paired with pears! Yes, the trip was quite wonderful. I have many of sweet memories from it.


How I wish I could get radicchio trevigiano here. I've seen it once or twice only Otherwise, I have to fall back on the old round Chioggia variety. It's fine, but IMHO it lacks the delicacy of other varieties.

By the way, kudos for being open to eating fresh corn. Many Italians I know think corn is only fit as pig food.. except for cornmeal for polenta, of course...

Simona Carini

Have you tried Whole Foods, Frank? Another avenue would be to suggest to some farmers that they try growing it. I was an adult when I tasted sweet corn for the first time. I am sure it had come out of a can, though I got it as part of a salad at a restaurant. I must say that when it comes to sweet corn, Italians miss out a lot.
