Easy White Truffle Risotto
Delicious, easy and oh so special. Just thinking about the heady aroma of truffles makes my mouth water. Just a few high-quality ingredients, a little patience and you'll have a lovely risotto.
- 1 1/2 C risotto rice Arborio or Carnaroli
- 2 shallots minced
- 4 T unsalted butter
- fresh ground sea salt
- 1/2 C dry white wine*
- 1/2 C Parmigiano cheese shaved
- 1/4 C Parmigiano cheese shaved
- 3 T White truffle oil
- 1 white truffle
In a large pot bring 5 cups of water to a simmer.
In a saute pans heat the butter over medium-high heat and saute the shallots for 2-3 minutes, careful not to let them brown.
Add the rice and stir well, then cook for 1-2 minutes, until the rice is well coated and hot.
Pour in the white wine and bring to a strong boil.
Stir often and let this cook down.
When it is almost dry, add a 1/4 cup of the simmering water and grind about a teaspoon of salt over the rice.
Stir constantly until the water has almost boiled away.
Add another 1/4 cup of simmering water and continue this process until the rice is al dente.
Taste for salt and add some if needed.
Add about 1 tablespoon of water and add the Parmigiano cheese.
Cook for 1-2 minutes, constantly stirring.
Turn off the heat and stir in the truffle oil.
Serve in shallow bowls, add shaved Parmigiano cheese, and very thinly shave the truffle just before serving.
* Use best quality white wine. Wine you would drink.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.
Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
