Puntarelle (Chicory)

JeremyEG | Oct 8, 2008 03:00 PM

Hey Guys,
So one of my wife's favorite dishes is Puntarelle (chicory(. She always talks about how it's prepared in Rome. Once, at Lupa we saw it on the menu. It was so good. Anchovies, a little cream and I think garlic. They said there are 2 farmers growing it near NYC and that Batali gets it when he can. I found a small box of it at the market today and I bought it. Do you guys know how to cook it? I want to serve it at room temp but I'm not sure whether it's a quick saute or a slow low heat thing or what. Any ideas?
Thanks for your help!
