Mushroom Risotto In Radicchio Wrap With Balsamic Syrup

Created by Executive Chef Brandon Miller of Stokes Adobe in Monterey, California, this dish uses a radicchio “wrap” for a beautiful presentation. Yields 8 wraps.



  1. Immerse the radicchio leaves in an ice bath for 20 minutes to soften bitterness.

  2. To make the balsamic syrup, combine the balsamic vinegar and honey. Reduce in sauté pan over low-medium heat to syrupy consistency. Let cool.

  3. For risotto, in a large saucepan melt butter; add onion, bay leaf and herbs.

  4. Sweat onions with herbs until sweet and translucent. Add all mushroom except enoki and sauté for 10 minutes over medium heat.

  5. Add rice and sauté for 2 more minutes. Add white wine and cook out alcohol.

  6. Cooking at medium heat, add hot stock 4 ounces at a time, stirring constantly for 15 minutes or until rice is soft with a firm middle.

  7. Add peas, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 more minutes. Finish with grated Parmesan.

  8. Pat dry the radicchio leaves. Lay them out flat and fill with mushroom risotto; then roll up like a burrito. Place fold side down on a plate and drizzle with balsamic syrup. Garnish with enoki mushrooms.
