£2.25

Pain de sucre grown on our French farm. Also known as sugarloaf chicory, pain de sucre is part of the bitter leaf family that includes endive, chicory and radicchio. It shares their bitter, earthy flavour, but it is the sweetest. If you enjoy slightly bitter flavours, discard a few of the outer leaves, then shred and mix with milder leaves. You could balance it with a robust dressing, sweetened with balsamic vinegar. If you have sweeter tastes, cook as you would endive, chicory or radicchio; traditionally with ham or bacon and lots of cheese and cream.
