Why are we the Chicory Chicks?

We know where Chicory comes from: radicchio, treviso, and castelfranco are chicories and are very tasty & nutritious indeed. Don’t know a lot about these Italian specialty chicories? Check out our products page to learn more.

Now how are we coming up with Chick? Well it’s simple, I’m the oldest granddaughter of Joe Marchini, the co-founder & face of Joe’s Premium. My name is Francesca & I enjoy cooking, deep cleaning, talking with produce buyers, and I LOVE radicchio & Italian specialties. Italian way of cooking with fresh seasonal ingredients is so my style. I make pasta with whatever is in my vegetable garden or fridge at least once a week. Sometimes when I’m cooking in the kitchen I wish I could go back in time and cook with my Nonnie (Joe’s Mother).Nonnie always insisted on feeding her grandchildren and great-grandchildren when they stopped by for a quick visit. Her dishes were effortlessly put together with the best homestyle flavors. I hope my recipes here on the Chicory Chicks live up to my Nonnie’s standards.
