Muse de la Witloof (Endive)

Search Brussels

The Witloof is an endive, also known by several other names: Chicon, Belgian White Endive, Brussels Lof, Brsseler Weib Chicorei. It was first cultivated by a Schaerbeek farmer, Antonius Dekoster, in 1830, who cut and nourished what originally appeared as a mutant white plant among the chicories that were meant for his cattle. The Witloof Museum chronicles the history and usage of this vegetable since Dekoster's fortuitous discovery.
