First of all I would like to apologize: as you might have noticed I’m in Paris this month and sincerely, well, running around working, a-hum, and tasting french food has took almost all of my time. So – mea culpa – not only I had very few time for blogging in general, I also put much less time in this Donna Hay event than I would have liked to. So, thanks to all participants, (sorry if I didn’t reply to everyone!!) anyway here they are, your risottos for Donna. I hope it will give some inspiration to cook more risotto at home – I’ll certainly try some of the entries, I really will! – and, votes are now open … good luck to all!!

Just a little reminder: you can mail your vote by the 10th of december to risottofordonna(at)gmail(dot)com and the winner of this Donna Hay day will receive a 100% italian goody box, generously offered by San Lorenzo, italian on-line gourmet store. The giftbox includes a bottle of olive oil, a bottle of balsamico vinaiger, some exellent rice for risotto, a pesto that’s pretty similar to the one I make at home, a jar of black olive paste and one of orange zabaione.0
