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.
During lockdown, a lot of people keep themselves busy in the kitchen. Me first! It is such a pleasure to have the time to cook, to leaf through cookbooks and to list the ingredients I need, but also to compose with the food I have in my fridge and cupboards! Here is a recipe for almond and red fruit cake. A very simple recipe, which includes a little white wine, for a delicious cake. A nice surprise when it comes to tasting it!
