Re: Risotto

EARTHMUM....thankyou for starting this thread...Mrs Wine~o is out with the girls tonight...so I am cooking for one.....


Mrs Wine~o will eat almost anything I prepare...with only two major exceptions....

I haven't made myself a Risotto in years... so much so that I've had pop out to the shops to buy Arborio rice..

Tonight then...broad bean and courgette (Home grown) Risotto...

Pork Loin with a Hoi-sin and  balsamic glaze...


(the 2 thing Mrs. Wine~o doesn't fully appreciate...Pork and Risotto...)


as a final  after thought...where a Risotto recipe calls for white wine...use a dry Vermouth instead...delicious... yummy  dribble

Re: Risotto

Sounds good, Win-o.  I too use Vermouth whenever a recipe calls for white wine.

Re: Risotto

there's no right or wrong answer with risotto, even in prestigious recipe books you'll find discrepancies..... I'm sure Jamie even does it differently from Gennaro,..... it's a free varied dish....

Re: Risotto

I think that the word "blasphemy" used concerning food is blasphemy...
The world is evolving and so are concepts and ideas and food is no different. Why not give it a try? For me blasphemy doesnt apply to food. Taste does.
I may not like it but if someone does... whistle

I wouldnt ask or serve a fillet steak well done, yet many people will only have it that way.
In one of the times Madonna came to Portugal for a concert she stayed in a posh hotel and brought some bottles of Petrus along. Then in the middle of the meal she asked for 7UP and mixed it. That would be blasphemy in a lot of people's book. Not in Madonna...

I use Moscatel. Also a great alternative.
