Wednesday is... risotto night!

What’s for dinner on a cool autumn evening in Venice?

Forget Prince Spaghetti Day! Consider this glistening risotto flavored with melted onion bits, buttery William pear chunks, and creamy taleggio cheese. Add a tiny, oven-dried pear slice just to make it pretty. It’s absolute perfection with a salad of spicy greens and toasty walnuts. Have just a bite of extra-dark chocolate for dessert. Then go to bed feeling very rich indeed.

(I got this luscious recipe from a Venetian friend, “M” – Thanks again!)
