Lent began on Monday.  This was a simple lentil soup with lagana which is an unlevened bread.
This was Valentine's Dinner     
Mushroom risotto - a house favorite.  I started off by rehydrating some chanterelle and porcini.  The stock from these went into the risotto of course, as well as did the rehydrated mushrooms after I chopped them finely.   In a pan I sauteed the button mushrooms with olive oil and thyme.  As you can see they create a nice fond which adds further flavor to the dish.  I remove the mushrooms and start with the risotto.  Finely chopped onion, toasted the rice, vermouth,...
