Fresh baby Red Russian kale, grown by the Richardson family on Home Farm, Yorkshire. Fine-fronded Red Russian is a sweet, delicate variety of kale – and these young leaves are the sweetest and most tender of all. It’s a treat briefly steamed or braised, or wilted into dishes at the end of cooking for a burst of leafy goodness.


Delicate Red Russian kale takes only 1-2 minutes to boil or steam. It won’t weep too much water as it wilts, like spinach or chard, so is easy to add to a dish at the end of cooking for a flash of green. Stir into risottos, hearty ribollita-style stews and pasta dishes for the final 3-4 mins of cooking.

Raw Red Russian kale can make a simple salad folded with a punchy dressing of buttermilk or yoghurt, spiked with garlic, lemon juice, fresh herbs and olive oil. ‘Massaging’ the leaves with a little oil and salt prior to dressing has a tenderizing effect on the leaves.
