Roasted Radishes and Carrots

Fresh and locally sourced ingredients transcend through the art of cooking. Alice Waters, the American chef that pioneered such culinary philosophy is right on target. At her restaurant Chez Panisse, their specialty is transforming a simple ingredient to something amazing. Her pairing of radishes with herb salad was simple to the eye but the taste is beyond words. A crisp clean bite, followed by a hint of spice, pepper and a grassy note. We may not have Chez Panisse in Southern California, but we have access to great local produce. The folks at Uncommon Good, a local non-profit organization with an urban...
