Nutty farro and Arabic spices make a beautiful flavour combination. Serve as a vegetarian main course or as a side dish with roast leg of lamb or grilled meat.
Spring vegetables, sorghum and truffle oil make this a spectacular risotto. Sorghum is an excellent gluten-free substitute for Israeli couscous.
Freekeh—pronounced free-kah—is wheat harvested when young and green. It has a firm, chewy texture and a distinctly earthy, nutty and slightly smoky flavour that’s perfect in this risotto.
Grano is an ancient grain from Southern Italy with a toasted wheat flavour and a chewy texture similar to barley. Cooked and tossed with pesto and topped with a poached egg it makes a delicious vegetarian main course.
There’s lots of umami flavour in this risotto from the toasted grano, meaty cremini mushrooms and shaved parmesan. A beautiful first course or side dish with grilled or roasted meat.
Fragrant Indian spices are perfectly paired with the natural sweetness of the caramelised onion and nutty flavour of the farro. Delicious as a vegetarian main course or served with Tandoori chicken or lamb.
The best of two worlds in a bowl. A creamy risotto with the Japanese flavours of ginger, seaweed, tangerine peel and black sesame seeds.
There are few dishes as comforting or delicious as risotto, a rice dish cooked in hot flavourful liquid until it reaches a rich creamy consistency. It’s simple to prepare but like so much great Italian cooking is deeply tied to the quality of its ingredients.
