Della Terra | Mastering Risotto
January 31 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
January 31, 2019
Perfect for chilly winter days, risotto is the ultimate Italian comfort food. We’ll create two classic preparations of risotto, as well as a non-traditional but delicious local farro risotto. We’ll explore different types of rice that can be used for risotto, as well as local grains. We’ll learn that “cream is for cheaters”, and create the ideal taste and texture of perfectly cooked, “al dente”, yet smooth risotto.
In this hands-on, engaging class, we will use the finest & freshest ingredients of the local harvest to create:
Red Wine Risotto with Tuscan Kale, Italian Sausage, and Parmesan
Leek and Mushroom Farro Risotto with Arugula Pesto
Winter Squash Risotto with Local Cheeses
*Menu subject to change based on local and seasonal availability.
