We tried the Seafood Risotto recipe from Jamie’s Italian, which contains a mixture of fish and shellfish with fennel, tomatoes, carrots, bay leaf, parsley and lemon. The risotto bianco is cooked in white wine, fish stock and flavoured with onion, garlic, celery and Parmesan. We thought the recipe was only OK and we wouldn’t do it again.
We opened a bottle of Poggio Verde Frascati Superiore 2011, an Italian white from the Wine Society. The wine was crisp, citrussy with a creaminess and we enjoyed it. It was a fair match with the food.
