Risotto Relay Rundown

Well, its time to judge our very first blogging event - The Risotto Relay, and boy was it tough for the 2 of us to agree on one winner.

We had 14 entries and I reckon I could sit down at the dinner table and enjoy them all. I tell ya, looking at all this risotto means I am craving it and we're having it for dinner here in Sydney on this sunny Sunday.

There is probably more than 14 ways to say yummy but I can't think of them right now, instead take a look for yourself...

So the 1st entry we received was from Brilynn Jumboempanadas with her Prawn/Shrimp & Pea Risotto http://jumboempanadas.blogspot.com/2007/09/defying-logic.html

2nd was Simona from PBJonrye with Pumpkin Risotto http://www.pbjonrye.com/ but we didn't get a copy of a photo and I am unable to get a link to take you directly there, its worth a look though. (Augustina, please email us a photo if you see this and we'll amend it).

3rd was Augustina from Briciole with an idea for leftovers, Risotto-al-salt http://briciole.typepad.com/blog/2007/09/risotto-al-salt.html

4th was Chez Denise from Chezdeniseetlaudalino with Abalone Mushroom Risotto
