Judy: Yum, yum, yum.
John: You have to say more than that.
Judy: It’s very moreish. Fantastic flavours.
John: It definitely needs an intercourse interval though.
Peter: Boom boom!
John: Because it’s heavy and rich. Like an Italian princess.
Peter: Are you just back from the northern club circuit?
John: I have nothing against Italy, just the Bunga Bunga…..
Judy: It’s definitely not Bunga Bunga.
Anna: I’m lost now. It’s very winterish I think, quite heavy.
Judy: It’s not heavy, it’s light. I think risotto is always light, at any time of year. The textures are wonderful. The al dente rice, with the crunchy onion, and the chorizo.
John: It is quite regal.
Judy: Like the Italian princess.
John: It would go well with a Verdi opera.
Anna: Which one?
Judy: Il Trovatore.
Peter: Well I thought it was unctuous. It had a refreshing blend of large bits of chorizo and small bits of chorizo. I think it was the surprise and delight of the dish.
Judy: I agree with that. At first I thought there were only small bits and then I found the large bits.
Anna: That was by accident rather than design. The chorzio fell apart when I was cutting it up.
Peter: Did you like the way she structured the recipe? It looks quite simple to me. Compared to, say, Jamie’s 30 second Whatsits…..
Anna: It was great. Easy to follow, easy to make, delicious to eat. Though a bit hot to make on a hot, muggy night. But well worth it. I will be making this again.
Judy: And I will be copying the recipe from you!
