Local Food: The burgundy leafed radicchio is an Italian staple, and though it looks much like green leaf cabbage, it is actually a variant of chicory. Slightly bitter - with a hint of spice - when eaten raw, slowly braising or even roasting or grilling radicchio mellows the deeper flavors. Steven prepares the mildly spicy, crispy radicchio to complement the sweetness of the apples and celery root he serves with grilled scallops. The rich brown butter sauce with crispy sage and fennel confit round out the dish and balance the earthy winter vegetables.
