I've never been a big risotto fan. I've always found it stodgy and overrated. Tonight I picked up Gordon Hamersley's "Bistro Cooking at Home". I made the lemony risotto, Fiona's Fish (with sole) and an apple galette (instead of peach). The risotto was a nice match for the fish with the lemony flavors. The fish and risotto were bland in color but a bit of spinach, some parsley and lemon took care of the beige-ness of the meal. A nice Saturday meal all in all. I'm looking forward to trying more from this book. All-in-all it took me a bit over an hour from start to finish.
