Savoy cabbage is also known as curly cabbage. With ruffled, lacy, deeply ridged leaves, Savoy cabbages are perhaps the prettiest cabbages around. The leaves are more loosely layered and less tightly packed than green or red cabbage, although its uses are similar. It is delicious thinly sliced in salads or quickly stir-fried. Or, try it braised in butter.

Yet Savoy cabbage is a bit more tender than other cabbages and works nicely as a fresh and crunchy wrap - try using it in place of rice paper or tortillas with your favorite fillings.
