Risotto......interesting/new combinations?

Post  Jorge Henriquez on Wed Jan 21, 2009 5:10 pm

Gonna make some risotto Thursday night. My tried and true is spicy sausage/mushrooms. Any suggestions on a new recipe? I'd like to try sometime Lobster/Corn. What are your thoughts?

Butternut squash and Reggiano. Finish with brown butter and sage.

Nice suggestions all.

Zach - The thing with prosciutto is that once it "cooks" it loses a major part of its attraction. Becomes rubbery and less flavorful.

Bill - Chanterelles on anything is always good.

Bobba Fett - question regarding the squash: what's the cooking procedure beforehand, roast or steam? Do you puree it or add it in cubes? Finally, the sage.....cooked in the brown butter or raw? Not a fan of raw sage.

Jorge, you cube it, roast it and add it at the end. And you cook the sage in the brown butter. Or you could leave it out.

Here's an idea. Be bold and creative. Think of some typical Dominican ingredients and make risotto with them. Being Greek, I've thought of doing Kalamata olive and feta risotto or lamb, Kalamata and feta lasagna.

Noble idea Mr. Wood; nonetheless, methinks a plantain or yucca risotto might land me in hot water with pretty much anyobody I'd be "bold" enough to serve it to. Wink affraid

I had this exact combination at a restaurant (Tabla) a few weeks ago and it was absolutely delicious. The key was that the squash was cut into tiny cubes, and was thoroughly tender w/o being mushy.

Kristi would love this...I hate all gourd. How big were the squash cubes?

Camera phone pic in a dark restaurant, but this should give you some idea of the size.

It wasn't a mound, per se... it wasn't gluey. The texture was very good. Like I said, it's a low res picture in a dark room. I only posted it here to give Bill an idea about the size of the squash cubes.
