Risotto & Beyond – Ruffoni Risotto Pot Set

Roast by Louise Franc, Ruffoni Copper Covered Roaster and Boos’ Prep Master Cutting Board Promotion

There are days when the complexity of a multi-component dish is a zen experience for me in the kitchen. Spending hours with ingredients and the author's words is as rewarding as sitting down to enjoy the meal. The resultant countertop splattered with the day's work, the pile of dishes and soiled utensils further serve as evidence of my dedication to… read more
