Artichoke Risotto Recipe

Risotto is one of the most popular dishes throughout the north of Italy and it is available anywhere in the Veneto Region (which is the region of Italy that my site is about).

From Venice in the east to the little town of Lazise on the western boundaries of Veneto very few restaurants here would dare not to have at least one risotto recipe featured on the menu.

This risotto recipe is one of the ones I love most. It is made with artichokes and the loveliest pesto sauce you have ever eaten.

It is a recipe that I only recently discovered. It was given to me by a dear friend and internationally acclaimed chef Viviane Bauquet Farre. You can read more about Viviane and get a few more recipe ideas by visiting her lovely internet site here.

Well on with the recipe – please just click play and Viviane will take you through it step by step.
