  • About

This is the original recipe for risotto made with the ink taken from squid. If you cannot get hold of squid with their ink sac, you will have to abandon the idea of making this dish until your next self-catering holiday in Italy!

Although the most off-putting thing about this dish is undoubtedly its colour - we are simply not used to eating black food! - it’s a delight for those amongst us who love really strong fishy tastes.
