Chicory

Chicory

Chicory has a white bulb with tightly packed cones. Chicory leaves may be tipped with yellow-green or red. They can excellently be eaten raw or stir-fried or be served as a vegetable side dish. Whole chicory-heads can be backed or grilled as well.

Did you know?

Once picked and exposed to light, chicory leaves start to become bitter. Therefore they should be wrapped in paper to protect against the light and eaten soon.

Passion fruit

Passion fruit

Passion fruits are native to South America and there are a number of varieties, from large yellow to smaller purple passion fruits. The vivid and juicy flavour serves as a perfect addition to both sweet and savoury dishes.
