    This was delicious! We were out of ricotta so I used creme fraiche. And added a bit more lemon juice to compensate for the creaminess of the creme fraiche. The soft fennel flavour makes this very special.

    This risotto is a little different as the result of the lemon and goat cheese. It is quite tasty with a beautiful sweetness from the fennel.

    Really original flavours in this. The fennel took a LOT longer to cook than 20 minutes-more like 40 minutes to get it soft and sweeter. I also cut the fennel into smaller pieces. Love the fresh ricotta & chilli combo

    The sweet fennel flavor with the hot red chilis worked nicely, and the lemon did a lovely job of perking up everything else.
