Italian Sushi

Yes there is and I made it today on this amazing spring sunday. I planted my heirloom tomato, hot pepper and herb garden yesterday listening to the Yankees come back from 9-0 to beat Boston at Fenway. I was so inspired I had an epiphany…Italian Sushi!

What makes this Italian is I use risotto instead of white rice. I am sure there are many methods to make the risotto sticky to manipulate choose anyone you want….mine is a secret!

Since it was sunday afternoon I paired it was a Valdo Prosecco NV Brut Rosé [Italy]: Pink colored, strawberry, hints of lavender and a fragrance of wild flowers, peach lipstick (reminds me when I was younger and the girls had those fruity lipsticks). So like smooching a girl in a field of flowers on the palate, soft lasting french kiss tingle on the tongue, produced from the Nerello Mascalese grape. It sells for about $17 bucks a bottle
