The blogger disappears and pops up in … San Francisco!
I’m in the Bay Area visiting family and friends. I’ve been busy trying to convince my ninety-three year-old grandfather to talk to me on tape. But in between cajoling sessions, I’ve had a chance to check out some local farmers’ markets. (How could I resist?)
Look at these lovely heads of radicchio:
My favorite way to eat radicchio in the winter:
Quarter the heads.
Sprinkle with salt.
Heat a cast iron pan, and add a generous amount of olive oil.
Cook on low, partially covered on a back burner while you’re doing other things.
Turn the radicchio pieces every once in a while, until they’re nicely browning and melty all over.
(If they start to crisp, turn the heat down. You want them melting and carmelized, not fried.)
