ENDIVE:  Apparently the name given to endive, escarole, and chicory depends upon the part of the country you are in. French or Belgian endive (Witloof chicory) consists of small heads of creamy white, smooth, long-tapering leaves from 1 to 2 inches in width, pressed tightly together. This endive has always been considered a delicacy. Escarole (Batavian endive) has leaves that are broad and flat, rather than curled at the tips. Gurly endive or chicory has narrow, fine, tight curls on a rather heavy rib.

ENGLISH LAMB CHOPS:  Thick chops cut from the full loin of lamb, not from the split loin, as usual.
