I may be late on the uptake at the possibility of brown rice risotto...but I made it last night, and it came out AMAZING. I also added shrimp and asparagus. The only difference was the increased cooking and liquid. I used Lundberg short grain brown rice (I found it in the Organic/Natural section of Wegmans) and I can say I am proud of myself :) I love brown rice, so the texture was just a bit firmer than regular risotto, but it was just as creamy and delicious!
Has anyone been to Pure Food and Wine? I'm kind of intrigued about it. My boyfriend said he'd be willing to try it with me.
I'm a vegetarian, he is not. So, to anyone that's been...is it satisfying enough for a meat eater as well as a veggie? It seems a bit expensive, and I'd hate to spend that kind of money for something mediocre.
I have long been in love with sushi (well, the vegetarian stuff.)
I frequently get takeout from the Japanese place behind my apartment, and my order is the same every time.
I'm curious about etiquette, I suppose. My boyfriend and I are going out with another couple next weekend to Morimoto in Philly.
My real question is...how many rolls am I "supposed" to order? I always get two plus a soup and maybe edamame when I order out...but is that "normal"? I've never actually gone out to a nice place for sushi before. How many rolls do you all order for yourselves? Do you order a whole variety for the table to share?
Sorry for my ignorance--I just always get nervous to go out to nice restaurants...I always fret about messing up, or being clumsy. Thanks for any help :)
I'll show you mine, if you show me yours. Must be true confessions!...
