Now that October is here, we finally feel comfortable about sharing a pumpkin recipe. before, it was just too soon. But we also think that if we are going pumpkin, we have to go big. And pumpkin risotto is filled with big pumpkin flavors. It adds a creaminess and a richness that is perfect in already delicious risotto.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 3 cups chicken stock, warm
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste.
  1. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter.
  2. Toss in the onion and cook until just translucent, about 5 minutes. Add in the rice and cook until toasted.
  3. Once toasted, add in the wine and cook until the wine is absorbed. Add the broth, 1/2 cup at a time.
  4. Cook until all of the broth has been absorbed and repeat until you have no more broth. At this point, the rice should be thick and creamy and cooked through.
  5. Stir in the Parmesan cheese, pumpkin puree and cinnamon until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Working Out of One’s Office

September 09, 2020

The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.

Andy Really Did It With Soup!

September 02, 2020

I have often found that when a person achieves incredible success – after a long struggle – the back-story is almost as fascinating as the achievement itself. That’s why I was interested in, yet another, Andy Warhol write-up that appeared in the May 2020 issue of the Smithsonian magazine.

If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
