CHICORY

Chicory is a leafy vegetable that is grown in the dark. The history of chicory dates back to 1830. In a rather coincidental way, it was discovered in Brussels that roots that had been lying in a dark barn for a long time grew into chicory. Chicory is usually cooked or stewed. However, it can also be eaten raw, prepared in the oven or eaten as a soup. The vegetable is very popular for its slightly bitter, fresh taste.

BELGIAN WHITE BLUE

They are often called the body builders of cattle because of their double-muscling, a heritable condition resulting in an increased number of muscle fibers, resulting in a perfect meat-fat ratio and lean but very tasteful meat.
