Wild Mushroom Risotto
Unlike with traditional risotto recipes, you won’t need to spend hours adding your stock a spoon at a time. The PKP gives you lovely creamy risotto…
Vibrant, delicious and packed full of flavour, Italian cuisine is perfect for any occasion. Whether it’s a family meal in, a date night or maybe even a dinner party, here are a couple of easy things you can do to make your Italian feast even more authentic and tasty!
This is the number one rule in Italian cooking. Fresh and beautifully ripe seasonal vegetables can elevate your dishes to the next level. And with the Pressure King Pro locking in all of these flavours, the taste sensation will set off (Italian) fireworks in your mouth!
Of course this is difficult to do with every recipe but risotto is a great place to start. You can easily substitute seasonal products around the same base ingredients: stock, onions and white wine. Adapt your risotto to fit each season. Perhaps pea and mint in the summer, or wild mushroom in the autumn… the possibilities are endless! Here’s a delicious recipe you can try with your Pressure King Pro:
The staple of Italian cuisine shouldn’t be just something you cook without thought. One rule when cooking Italian – don’t neglect your pasta!
Both the CleverChef and the Pressure King Pro 5L have dedicated pasta settings that take the stress out of making your pasta dish. Just make sure to salt the water generously to harness the extra level of flavour and DON’T add oil to the water – this stops all the yummy sauce sticking to the pasta when you mix it all together!
Why not start simple with our Pesto Pasta recipe?
Much authentic Italian food is in the style of “cucina povera” or “peasant food”. One of their best-loved traditional dishes is a soup dish called “Aquacotta” – cooked water! Most of this food relies on a perfected cooking process to fully bring out the flavours of all the ingredients so the Soup Chef is ideal for making the tastiest of dishes.
There are many simple, delicious Italian soups to try, such as Minestrone. Add a dash of oil on top of the finished soup and you’ll soon be mistaken for Gino D’Acampo!
