Risotto! Risotto!

posted by xscot mcknight

Some of you may know I like to cook, and my favorite dish is risotto. For a few years I’ve been using a nice pan but it was wearing out. Very kindly, Lukas and Annika (probably mostly Annika) bought me a Mario Batali Risotto Cookware and I’ve now made my first pot of risotto in the new cast iron cookware. Awesome because of its uniform heat. I made it with some porcini mushroom, saffron flavoring, light chicken stock, and a few diced tomatoes at the end as garnish.

Scot,
For my birthday, Julie gave me a copy of John Grisham’s latest novel *Playing for Pizza.* You’d love it (even though it is, drat!, fiction). A failing NFL quarterback goes to Parma, Italy to play (Americanized) football. The descriptions of the Italian foods make you drool.
Bring some of your Risotto! to the National Pastors’ Convention :)

After barbeque-ing risotto a couple of times, I think that rounded bottom would solve my scorching problem.
Happy stirring!

Scot, you need to share your secrets! Some of us love risotto, but can’t seem to time it right whenever we try to make it. Do tell, good man, how do you get the rice just right?

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
