Recipes from an Italian Butcher: Sautéed Radicchio

The Italian for Sautéed Radicchio is ‘Radicchio Tardivo in Padella’ – if you say it aloud it sounds impossibly romantic. The dish is just one of 150 authentic Italian recipes that you can cook at home from The Silver spoon’s book Recipes from an Italian Butcher published by Phaidon. It would make an interesting side dish to serve with roast turkey or goose this Christmas – it’s so easy to make and looks glamorous on the plate.

SIDE DISHES Roast Shallots

Roast Shallots with Balsamic Vinegar

Serve roast shallots with any roast meat dish or just eat them on their own with buttery mashed potatoes. Chop any leftover roast shallots finely and stir them into sour cream for a quick dip. We usually keep a jar in the fridge and use the shallot oil in dressings, adding the soft shallot pulp to vegetable mash, salads, couscous and stews.


Sweet Potato Mash

Sweet potatoes are a good alternative to potatoes. You can make this mash the day before and reheat it with a little milk or cream to loosen it.
