Did you know?
The word rhubarb comes from Latin and means 'barbarian roots'.
A hardy plant native to Asia, rhubarb was first introduced to Europe for its medicinal virtues rather than for its taste. Its acidic flesh awakens the taste buds and lends itself to gourmet desserts. More surprisingly, it is also used in savoury dishes. A source of calcium and fibre, this low-calorie fruit is easy to cook and appeals to children and adults alike.
Vitabio sources the rhubarb used in its recipes locally: in Picardy!
