Remember how we were discussing the importance of food compatibility? Or at least, I was ranting on about and you were reading? Yes. Let’s go back to that for a moment, and also discuss risotto.
It’s one of my favorite things. I love to cook it, I love to order it out, pretty much it’s good at anytime for any occasion and it’s easy. It sometimes takes awhile, but as long as you’re not in a super-rush to eat, it’s perfect any night. You can make it fancy with truffles, sun-dried tomatoes, shrimp, or keep it simple- cheese, or vegetables. It’s really my only go-to dish. The dish that I can make without a recipe, and usually have all the ingredients (at least the basic foundation of a good risotto) on hand.
Now why do we need to revisit last week’s discussion? Because I know there are people out there who don’t like risotto. And when it’s your go-to and you’re dating someone who doesn’t like it, you never get a chance to really show-off your culinary prowess. Of course I would make it for myself or friends, or order it at a restaurant, and although I impressed B with many other culinary delights, I never felt like I got to wow him with my one pride & joy, the ultimate comfort food- my pea risotto. So. I will wow you. (I hope.)
Though it’s unfortunate, risotto doesn’t seem to be the most photogenic of foods, but it’s like eating a hug, you know? It’s warm and comforting, the perfect welcome home after a rough day in the cubicle.
