They’re calling this pink lettuce in culinary circles. It’s radicchio and is actually a type of #chicory! 📸and styling by Sarah Phillips @food 💗It’s Radicchio del Veneto — also called La Rosa del Veneto — a pink chicory mostly grown in the Veneto region of Italy but now cultivated in California, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere. While everyday radicchio (the Italian word for chicory) is available year-round, many more complex varieties emerge in the late winter and early spring. The radicchio is “forced,” meaning it’s grown for a certain amount of time and harvested in the fall, replanted, and grown in the dark, often covered by sand, so sunlight doesn’t reach the stem.
