Sunshine on a plate

Jump to recipe

Spring in Scotland is a mix bag of weather and, consequently, moods. One second seems autumn with fine rain that goes on for hours, then when the sun comes out is fairly warm, sometimes to the point that seems like summer. And the mood change constantly with the weather, at least mine mood!

A good way to improve the mood is by bringing bright colours to the table and today is Risotto giallo. This amazing recipe use saffron to add its bright colour and the delicate flavour.

The recipe is quite simple but require a little bit of stirring, this will make sure that all the starch in the rice is extracted. The final part of the recipe, the “mantecatura”, is very important to make sure that the risotto is creamy and “all’onda” (when you stir it it should make small waves like the water movement in a canal in Venice).
