Luscious, creamy and inviting...

Pass the Alsace Reisling, s'il vous plait....


I totally agree with your analysis of restaurant risotto it invariably is dissapointing because kitchens cannot pay it the attention it deserves.

Definately a dish where the end result is proportional to the amount of love you put in.

Great blog btw, have added a link to you !


Dear Johanna,
thanks for this fantastic recipe ones again, and I was absolutely serious in saying that this is one of the best recipes I've ever tried, Congratulations!!


I love risotto - and make a mean one myself - going to have to try with these ingredients...



Let me be the next to say that pear and gorgonzola risotto is delicious. My wife and I make it all the time in the winter (it's especially good during the middle of a Canadian winter), and we love it so much that I wrote a post about it last month.

I've added a trackback on this post, and, Johanna, I hope you get a chance to check out our version of the dish. The URL is:



this certainly is delicious :-)

I hope you don't mind I translated your recipe into Dutch and put it up on my own weblog.


I was in Milan for new years and my hostess garnished it with a splash of cinammon. It was superb!

Greetings from South Texas :>)
