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.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
