My stepgrandmother turned 82 yesterday. Since my Aunt E was in town for Christmas she decided to cook a nice meal to celebrate the occasion. Look at this gorgeous roast pork stuffed with herbs.
But first the nosh. We had an olive tapenade with toasted bread:
The olives were deliciously salty:
We also had some creamy cheese that was similar to brie:
Here's the pork roasts fresh from the oven:
... and the main event, the porcini risotto:
E also cooked some peas:
... and we had a tossed salad:
Here's my plate with a little bit of everything:
... and a closeup of the risotto:
It was creamy and delicious, with large pieces of earthy porcini. I had two helpings of it and could have eaten more. Happy Birthday, B!!
