Another top feast with our hosts in Zadar yesterday saw us dine on fresh squid they had caught themselves the night before, with wine they had pressed themselves, accompanied by vegetables they had grown in their garden.
The only thing they had bought was the bread!
The squid risotto (using its own ink) was amazing and yet another first for us- simple, yet delicious and cooked to perfection with the al dente rice giving a lovely contrast to the silk like squid.
Why do UK restaurants charge a fortune for risotto? It's so simple to make, uses very few ingredients and yet the chefs make out it's a top of the range, complex dish.
It's not, so stop conning people into thinking it is and offer it at a reasonable price so that everyone can try it.
