Saffron Risotto with Summer Greens and Pea Shoots


Risotto allo Zafferano is historically linked with the city of Milan in northern Italy. When I worked for Gualtiero Marchesi in Milan, one of his most famous signature dishes was a plain saffron risotto topped with a single sheet of Gold Leaf! Stunning.
