Pumpkin risotto, roasted cod and Meyer lemon cake.

How were the potatoes, Tom? I used to eat smoked sable fish as a kid. Loved it.

Still two hours before dinner, but I've been licking the spoon and it's nice.

I should try smoking some black cod (sablefish), as it's readily available in Italy.

Tonight's dinner?

Oh, excellent. I never realized sablefish is the same as black cod.

Here is a link to the cake recipe

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Made risotto for the first time in my life last night. No recipe, winged it, had little idea what I was doing. Sweated off some chopped shallots in butter, cooked down some chopped leeks and chopped baby corn spears. Then added risotto rice (M Classic - there were two types in the supermarket, had no idea, so I picked the one in the red coloured packet rather than the one in the magenta packet), toasted for a couple of minutes, then started adding in heated stock, about a few spoonfuls at a time until all stock was absorbed before adding more. And stirring all the time over a low heat. No pan on the lid.

Turns out I made too little stock as I had quickly added my initial stock but the rice was clearly far from cooked. I made the same amount as I initially did and this improved things a bit and I also stopped stirring in the late stage and put a lid on to try and simply "cook" the rice that way (stopping evaporation). In desperation near the end I added a little bit of milk to make the texture quite creamy. Obviously not part of a traditional risotto recipe by any measure.

The result is attached and it tasted fine, although the rice might be slightly too al dante for liking. The resulting creaminess of the risotto wasn't porridge-sludge but it had a gloopy appearance.

For those who watch Masterchef (in particular the Australian version), people who follow Masterchef Australia know there are two dishes - called the "death dishes" - which have the highest tendency to bamboozle (and thus eliminate) any given contestant on the show. One of them is risotto, the other is panna cotta. I guess I won't be signing up for Masterchef any time soon...

Re: Tonight's dinner?

SoftBedPlease-
I give you a lot of credit for winging it and trying to make something like risotto! It looks pretty good! I don't know if you want a recipe for risotto or not but, the few times I've made risotto I have used this recipe: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipes...d-sage-risotto

I will caution you that the prep time and cook time are way off at least in my experience. (Took loads longer for me!)

I also have a recipe for a pumpkin and parmesan risotto that I will need to dig out.
Thanks for posting this. I know what I'm making for dinner later this week.

Bizarre and complex recipe.

Risotto takes about 18 minutes to cook, cook it to long and you get overcooked mush.

Boil it 5 minutes first? What are they thinking?
