I’m always amazed by the way risotto transforms rice. The flavour you can pack into those little grains is well worth the labour of love it takes to cook it.
In this dish, the sweet peas offset the salty flavours of the pancetta and make it a perfect midweek dish that even the kids can join in to help cook. It’s a crowd-pleaser that simply can’t be rushed – but it’s well worth the effort.
So pour yourself a glass of wine and let’s get cooking!
