Eggs aside, here are some culinary successes of my weekend:Risotto with pecorino, prosciutto, and goat cheese by Jamie Oliver
Recipe: olive oil, 1 onion chopped, 3 stalks celery, finely chopped, 3 cloves garlic chopped, 14 oz aborio rice, 2 quarts veg broth, 2 wine glasses full of good dry white wine, 2 handfuls of fresh lemon thyme, ½ stick butter, handful of Parmesan cheese, handful of pecorino, some proscuitto, and some goat cheese.
Bring broth to boil in one pan, reduce to simmer. In another pan heat oil. Saute onion, and celery a few minutes. Add garlic and sauté another minute. Add rice and cook 1-2 minutes stirring. Add the wine and thyme and cook, stirring constantly, until absorbed. Once wine is absorbed add one ladleful of stock cook, stirring until absorbed. Continue this until rice is al dente, about 15 minutes. Turn off burner. Then add parmesan cheese and pecorino cheese and butter. Gently stir in then place lid on pot and let stand covered for 3 minutes. Dish onto plates. Top each plate with prosciutto and crumbled goat cheese.
