During winter 2021, I tested an Italian recipe that I really like and whose ingredients include wine: a risotto with red wine and red radicchio. A very simple recipe to make for a dish with balanced flavors, which will especially delight people who appreciate a little bitterness in their food. I cooked this risotto with a wine from La Valpolicella, in north-east Italy. This article is also the opportunity to talk about wine tourism and discover the exceptional wines produced in that area.
The end of year is near, and the cool temperatures of winter are setting in. What better way to comfort ourselves than with the sweet flavors of gingerbread? I tested a recipe by French chef Julie Andrieu and was very happy with the result: the gingerbread was not too sweet and each of the spices used in the recipe can be identified when tasting the gingerbread, which is very soft, due to some sweet wine used to soak the cake after baking it. Here is the full recipe. Enjoy!!
