Chicory has many other namesakes; endive, radicchio, Belgian endive, witlof... the list is endless. In this chicory recipe from Josh Eggleton, the vegetable is caramelised and cooked with soy and orange juice to create a delicious side.
It can take decades of dedication and dogged effort to win a Michelin star. Josh Eggleton, though, was ‘shocked’ to win his first Michelin star at the age of 27, after only a few years of being a Head Chef.
