This tasting event will feature 8 radicchio varieties grown organically on the FFCF Research & Education Seed Farm in Abbotsford, BC. Guests will have the opportunity to taste both raw and cooked samples of each variety and rank their favourites for a chance to win radicchio-themed prizes.

All radicchio varieties featured are part of the Canadian Organic Vegetable Improvement Project (CANOVI), a five-year collaborative project between the UBC Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security, and FarmFolk CityFolk. Read more about CANOVI here.
