Radishes can be so much more than a garnish. Famous chefs are finding creative ways to use them. Spring is radish season although they are available through-out the year.
Ridgeview Farm has beautiful French breakfast radishes -named for their use sliced on buttered bread with a sprinkle of salt.

Michael Bauer, SF Chronicle Food critic on the radish “Most people don’t think of the typical radish as a vegetable. It’s repeatedly — and unfortunately — relegated to a garnish, but when it’s sauteed it enhances many dishes with its firm texture and spicy taste” Recipes and ideas

Ridgeview Farm is at the Wednesday market with beautiful radishes and lettuces and of course their seasonal bouquets.

Local Spicery has joined the Wednesday line-up. Fresh dried herbs and spices in the quantities you need.
