I’ve printed off a recipe for pumpkin risotto that I’m keen to try. I’ve had all the ingredients for a risotto for some time however I haven’t endeavoured to make it as I’m told risottos can be quite tricky. I thought I might as well give it a try with pumpkin as my sister-in-law raved about the one she’d had at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant. I’m not sure if it’s a flavour I will enjoy, and I know it won’t come close to Jamie’s, however if I don’t try I won’t know.
I’m going to freeze the left over pumpkin pieces I have so if any of you have any recipes you’d like to share I’m all ears.
Because pumpkin doesn’t seem to be an overly popular flavour and therefore not readily available in the UK, I have also been a bit envious of the variety in latte’s that are available in Canada at the moment. Pumpkin lattes don’t seem to be on the menu at the coffee houses here, yet I wish they were so I could give them a try. I don’t need the extra calories, and I’m not even sure I’d like it, yet the option to sample it would be nice. Saying that, I did try the crème brulee latte at Starbucks on the weekend and found it a bit too sweet, even skinny style. I think I’m better off sticking with my skinny vanilla latte’s from Café Nero. (It’s the next best thing to the Second Cup, trust me).
On another note, I was dismayed to find that the local Starbucks is no longer offering the falafel wrap. When I asked the reason behind this I was told that it’s not a popular choice in this
Wish me luck with the risotto!
