Risotto cooking lesson with Mizue
Mizue's boyfriend, John, was going to come back from Taiwan and she wanted to cook for him! So she came by to learn how to prepare a risotto! I posted a squid ink risotto earlier on. The basic recipe for all risotto's is the same. Go check it out here.
Instead of the squid and the ink, we went ahead and used some saffron (available in small glass jars at Trader Joe's). At the end, we also added some sherry and a lot of parmesan cheese.
Before Mizue came over, i already started preparing some veal shanks (ossobucco) to serve with the risotto. We had a great time cooking together and i think she'll be back soon for another lesson!
Mizue, how did the evening go with John?
