I go out of my way in Italy to find chicoria on the menu. On a recent trip, a local told me only the Italians understand the merits of what some people consider a weed. I love weeds! Give me chlorophyl-rich food like leaves & I am happy as a slug. Can someone please help me identify the plant so that while wandering on foot I will spot dinner & avoid trampling a humble vegetable? Thanks.
