Stemmari Cantodoro Risotto with Cherries & Gorgonzola
In Italy, wine is very much a part of the culture and I grew up being well acquainted with it.
In my region, the month of October means the weather is cooler after the humid summer, the grapes are just beginning to get that fullness that signifies readiness for winemaking. I remember the smells of the grapes, the way the skins appeared full to bursting with juice - the juice that would become wine.
Fagiolini in umido
A little steam, fresh green beans, tomatoes and cheese makes for a perfect vegetarian meal. Fast, fresh and healthy this is one of my favorite go-to dishes when I'm cooking at home for the family.
