The leaves of chicory (also called whitlo of or witloof), like those of Baby Little Gem, were made to be canapé vessels, as they have a natural hollow. You may like to make a platter up using alternating red and green chicory for a lovely effect.

You can use pre-cooked beetroot to save time, but beets you cook yourself will be much nicer When they’re in season, use golden or striped beets, and even blood oranges, for a different look.
