First Risotto of the Year


The first risotto of 2007 came into this world at around 3pm Eastern Standard Time. The happy parents named her 'Champagne'.

Haha, ok, so this is a Risotto blog, some of the time, so I thought it would be fun to make risotto for our first meal of 2007. This is Nigella's Champagne Risotto for Two from Feast. Apart from it being a regular type of risotto, the champagne is added at the time you would usually add wine in the beginning stage, and it was also a part of the 'stock' made up of champagne and chicken stock.

I didn't have leeks (the onion of choice), so I used spring onions. Still worked beautifully. A fab risotto; I urge you all to give it a go if by any chance you still have some sparkling wine or champagne hanging about -- you lushes!!

Cheers!

Mmmm, champagne risotto - one for me to try! Looks yummy.

Ilana, a couple of questions:

1) you never replied to my email about sending a DVD of Nigella's Xmas Kitchen. Email if you want a copy.

2) have you abandoned Tom altogether?
