Winters in London brings with it all sorts of beautiful bitters that kinda compensate for the frozen toes and fingers. There’s a lovely little market that I visit. They’ve got lots of independent businesses working out of an industrial estate. It’s sorta like a I’m-too-cool-for-the-masses market that’s on at the same time at Maltby Street.
Here I found Italian red tardivo radicchio and the blush pink radicchio that comes from Verona. I decided I had to make something simple to let these two shine, yet something that would also capture winter. I added some grapefruit segments steeped in rosemary syrup in the fridge from another project. And for a little sweetness, a ripe William pear. All of this came together with a red wine vinaigrette and some lime zest. Perfect little lunch.
PS: Another pink food I pickled recently.
