    Mise en place
    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel the carrots; still using your peeler, peel the carrots into long ribbons. Mince the garlic. Peel, halve and small dice the onion. Halve the radicchio lengthwise and remove the core; slice the leaves into ribbons.

    Roast the carrots
    On a lined sheet pan, toss the carrots with a drizzle of olive oil and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 8 to 10 minutes, until browned and tender.

    Start the risotto
    While the carrots roast, in a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, 1 to 2 minutes, until the onions have softened. Add the rice and cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the rice is slightly translucent. Add the demi-glace and 3 cups of water (5 cups for 4 portions); season with S&P. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, 17 to 20 minutes, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is al dente (still firm to the bite).

    Cook the radicchio
    While the rice cooks, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the radicchio and ½ the vinegar; season with S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until the radicchio is wilted.

    Finish & serve
    Add the Parmesan and 2 tbsp of butter (double for 4 portions) to the cooked rice. Cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly; season with S&P to taste. Add the radicchio and toss to combine. Divide the finished risotto between your plates and top with the roasted carrot ribbons. Drizzle with the remaining vinegar. Bon appétit!
