Wednesday was day one of Adrian’s cooking challenge. He was brave and chose an asparagus parmesan risotto for his first dish. He even made it properly – he cooked it with the onion, garlic and white wine, and he blanched the asparagus! I never bother with any of that, so my risottos aren’t the greatest. Also, I’ve never blanched a vegetable in my entire life.
The first night he sounded like Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen. It was F this and F that.
But it all came together perfectly in the end. Really excellent.
This definitely convinced me it’s worth taking the time to prepare a proper risotto.
On night #2 he made carrot and chickpea burgers.
These were great because you know I always love a good veggie burger. Only problem was this:
I forgave him this time because it was only his second night cooking so he hasn’t mastered the art of simultaneous cooking + washing. He’s doing such a good job that I can’t wait to see what else he has in store! In fact, I plan on recreating his risotto for my lunch at work next week. 🙂
