Dandelion, in collaboration with Turner Farm, is teaching a risotto making class on April 16th from 10AM-1PM. You will not only have hands-on experience making risotto, but you will also learn why each step in the process is so important. Below is just a sample of the questions that will be answered:
- Rice varieties: what properties you should look for in choosing rice
- Acidic component: why an acidic component is so important
- Stock: why you need to add stock in small quantities
- Flavoring: when should you add meat, vegetables and herbs
- Ratios: how much uncooked rice, stock and wine is needed per serving
Also, we will be making 3 or 4 varieties of risotto in the class for all to try, including Mushroom, Saffron and Spinach w/ Goat Cheese!

Risotto is one of very few dishes that is generally better prepared at home than in a restaurant. This is mainly due to the fact that world-class risotto has no effective shortcuts and is never prepared ahead of time. In this class you will learn proper risotto-making techniques and the science behind each indispensible step. As always, we will integrate food from the farm to create a few seasonal varieties of the dish.
The class will begin in the Meshewa kitchen, located at 7550 Given Road in Cincinnati. After we finish eating (and weather permitting), we will tour the Turner Farm gardens. Please dress appropriately.
To sign up, please visit the “cooking class” tab of Laura’s website: www.dandelionchef.com. The cost of the class is $35. Email Laura with any questions at email@example.com.
