   Sergio, the CSA Farmer, gives us some spicy ass radishes. They have some serious tangy life in them, especially when eaten raw. I like it. But, while at the City Bakery, which is one of the BEST and most luxurious lunch buffets in all of New York City, I had Roasted Radishes with Celery. They were wonderful and really mild and crunchy. So when we got another bunch of radishes I decided to give it a try. 
   I sauteed some garlic and shallots in extra virgin olive oil with peperoncino, then added the celery and the shallots, salt and pepper. I cooked them for about 10 minutes altogether. The shallots got so sweet and caramelized. When I turned the heat off I added some chopped cilantro. It was a really nice crispy, mild and warm way to enjoy that bunch of radishes that always gets short changed as a side show in a tossed salad, while they really should be the main event.

Jen, thanks for making these for me in the country. I never had eaten them cooked and was for a pleasant surprise.
