Large crisp heads of finely crinkled emerald leaves. Named for a region in Northern Italy, Savoy Cabbage (“Cavolo Verza” in Italian) is ideal for wrapping around fillings and in stews, soups and risotto. A great match with red wine, juniper, apples, spices and horseradish. Excellent for preserves like kimchi or sauerkraut.
