My friend, The Naked Chef
I made one of my favorite winter comfort foods tonight: risotto. It was just a basic recipe with no extras (like peas or shrimp or mushrooms or pancetta), but was SOOO good! Instead of white wine I used vermouth, which gave it a much richer flavor.
The recipe we've always used for risotto is from Jamie Oliver, our old friend. I swear, I feel like I know that guy. We used to watch "The Naked Chef" back in the day, and have many of his cook books.
I think I like that he seems like such a regular guy. He could be your neighbor -- your neighbor who happens to be a wicked awesome chef.
Good old Jamie, always comes through in a pinch...
A few weeks ago, John MADE me watch a Jamie Oliver video about how to chop. I couldn't find the exact video, but here is another one that's quite good.
Tomorrow I'll tell you what lead up to my HAVING to watch the video.
Hope you learn something!
