There are certain foods that make me feel like I am really “cooking” – risotto is one of them. I don’t know whether it is the slow addition of the heated stock, the gentle stirring, the monitoring and babying of your risotto, or the joyful comfort that you receive at the end. Whatever it is, I love it.
It’s almost like it’s your child. I don’t know about you, but I have little conversations with me risotto. “Is that enough?” “Do you want more?” “Are you finished?” “How about just one more scoopful?”
And then after you’ve given it just what it needs, it turns around and gives you just what you need.
I found this Portofino Lamb and Artichoke Risotto recipe at allrecipes.com. I’m not going to type in the recipe…one – it’s Friday and I’m lazy, and two – you need to go check out allrecipes, really you do.
This will be my entry for Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!
