"Radishes are so beautiful but most people run out of ways to use them," says Alvarez. "Shaved in a salad is the obvious thing, but have you ever tried cooking them? Roasted in a foil packet with bone marrow butter with veal… yum. You'll be surprised how delicious they can be. Use a mix of different radishes if you can."
Note Marrow bones are available from butchers, but you may need to order them in advance; ask for them to be split. Soak them overnight to remove blood, then scoop out the marrow.
