puntarella/puntarelle salad greens

Jenny | Mar 4, 2002 12:21 PM

Does anyone know where to buy them or a Bay Area restaurant that serves them? It's time to send to Cook's Garden for seeds if I'm going to plant them this spring but I'd like to taste them first. A friend had them in Italy, said they were delicious, also expensive to buy. Apparently because they're hard to prepare or clean.

I know they're a chicory and wondered if they taste like dandelion greens which are wonderful in a salad
with sorrel leaves and balsamic. Though dandelion greens you can almost always find at Whole/Real Foods or Rainbow, and sorrel grows in my garden as a perennial, I've never seen puntarelle anywhere.
