My ideal image of not only the perfect risotto but also my ultimate comfort food would have to be a big bowl of creamy, luxurious risotto, clattering about in my bowl from the sounds of shells clanking around, offering up their tenderly sweet but briny decadence – piccoli gioielli del mare!
This is comfort food at its finest: sweet roasted fennel tangling in a savory risotto, studded with slices of Italian sausage. Delicious!
Green garlic (or spring garlic) is a whisper of garlicky flavor. Herbaceous, and vegetal, it’s subtler than mature garlic; risotto is a perfect vehicle to showcase its ethereal flavor.
