It’s not a risotto, nor is it a soup, but some Venetian concept in between that is slightly soupy but should still be able to be eaten with a fork. Risi e bisi (rice and peas) used to be served on April 25th at the annual feast of San Marco, the patron saint of Venice, in celebration of the first springtime peas from the kitchen gardens of the Venetian lagoons.
