Victory at last
I am--finally--declaring victory over Arborio rice. Tonight I cooked Vegetarian Jambalaya (substituting Arborio rice for the farro--incidentally, if you do want to use farro, note that it's called "spelt" in North America--otherwise the nice people at Central Market will be terribly confused) which turned out very well. Maybe Fiona's visit was the final thing I needed to master the arborio. :)
Jenny says: "Very, very tasty. Two thumbs up."
Oh, by the way: this recipe makes a lot of jambalaya. Use a big pot and invite company. :)
