  • About

This risotto, in contrast to the black risotto, is flavored with elements that should not be added until the end of the cooking of the rice, keeping the flavors fresh and their colors bright. This risotto is finished with peas and a butter mixed with fresh pea puree. Asparagus, fava beans, green beans (haricots verts), and fresh herbs like basil are examples of other ingredients and flavors that need to be added only at the last minute.
