Cook with chicory 

Budding cooks with recipes using chicory could win up to £5,000 and a trip to The Netherlands in a competition launched by the Dutch Produce Association, which is trying to get more people to use the vegetable. 

Cherries promoted 

The first Spanish Pictoa cherries were in stores this week, backed by a campaign from Foods From Spain. There are 1.6 million bottles of wine up for grabs for those who buy the stalkless cherries.
