Il Riso del Mercato presents "Simple as Rice", a special workshop at Mercato Metropolitano.
Did you know that Italy is the biggest producer in Europe of high-quality rice, like Carnaroli for Risotto?
The organic rice producer and sommelier Cristiana Sartori and the Italian foodie and passionate cook Biagio Di Fiore will guide you through this two hours hands-on class, where you will prepare and taste:
- Omelette with red whole grain Ermes rice, fresh chestnut mushrooms and Parmigiano cheese (vegan option available)
- Spring time salad with red whole grain Ermes rice and fresh vegetables
- A delicious risotto Carnaroli with courgette and mint (vegan option available)
- A glass of white wine Gavi "Tenuta del Melo" or Spumante Brut Charmat Oltrepò Pavese, specially paired with the dishes by our sommelier Cristiana (more can be bought during the night)
3 things you will learn during your rice experience:
- tips and tricks on how to cook Italian rice to reach the perfect texture (creamy and al dente) and how to keep the texture when you cook for a lot of guests
- three different family recipes that will show you how versatile Italian rice can be and which dish each variety is best suitable for
- the best wine and food pairing to enhance the whole dining experience
