Top One Hundred Italian Rice Dishes
Diane Seed (Ten Speed Press)
to say, 50 of these top 100 Italian rice dishes are risottos. Italian
food expert Diane Seed has previously authored the worthy The Top
One Hundred Italian Dishes, The Top One Hundred Pasta Sauces,
Eating Out in Italy and Diane Seed's Rome for all Seasons.
Seed, like virtually everyone who has ever tasted good risotto, knows
it's literally the cream of the crop. Therefore, she offers plentiful
pots of risotto con asparagi (asparagus risotto), risotto ai calamari
(risotto with squid), panissa (bean, sausage and bacon risotto), riso
in cavroman (lamb risotto with herbs and spices) and other delights.
Additional standouts not of the risotto variety: miroton (beef and
rice bake), riso al tonno (rice with sun-dried tomatoes and tuna) and
minestra di riso e pesce (rice and fish broth). Before the feast begins,
Seed sows some excellent cooking tips.
