Food of Love

15 02 2011

What did you devour on Valentine’s Day? I meant the food, of course! For me, risotto is a food of love. She rewards your patience and care with a  sublime texture of slightly al dente rice and unctious creaminess. MMMM. To our basic risotto we added fresh crab meat and crispy pancetta, some pan roasted heirloom tomatoes and mushrooms (bellas, oyster and shiitake), and some toasted  pine nuts. Amore!

Haha! I wish I had thought of risotto, you’re right it is creamy, malleable, tasty, versatile, strong to the bite, everything I would want a relationship to be!
