Cauliflower Risotto

As my buddy D would say, this one isn't going in the book.

I saw this recipe on The Traveler's Lunchbox, a blog I found last week. The photo was breathtaking and the recipe sounded great, but my version just didn't taste good. All the components were there - garlic, onion, vermouth, cauliflower - but the end result did nothing for me.

I don't think it's the recipe's fault, though. For years I've loved risotto; loved eating it and making it. Then I met SP, who is decidedly anti-risotto. He's a good sport and he tries it whenever I make it, but he just isn't a fan. Over time I realized that it just didn't taste as good as it used to. I don't order it when we go out to eat anymore and the few times a year I make it at home I don't enjoy it.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I don't think I like risotto anymore. This is the end of an era.
Pin It!


  1. Don't give up on Risotto so soon. Coincidentally I had a great shitake and spinach risotto tonight and then saw your blog.

    It's in your blood. You just have to find the right restaurant to try it again.

  2. Hi Dad! I was wondering if you'd ever post a comment. :)

    If I find the right restaurant I'd be willing to give it a another shot. I remember the sublime risottos of my college days. I miss that kind of risotto.

  3. I just needed the right circumstances and I'm glad to see that something was good about your college experience at Dickinson.
