Stefano was so pleased with my photos of the figs, carrots and maize etc in his vegetable patch earlier in the week, so much so that he offered to come over and cook for us on our final night. He brought all the ingredients including a flagon of olive oil from last year”s olive crop as well as fresh radicchio and red wine to make the risotto.
We have so many laughs as Stefano does a “Julia Child” and we video the performance.
|To illustrate this blog post, I had to photograph the red radicchio “cup” containing my seafood salad at lunch in Rome today|
All we we did with this great flagon of home-pressed olive oil was to fry the onions at the beginning of the exercise, but it looked good

Now, here is the recipe for Stefano”s Radicchio and Red Wine Risotto ENJOY!
