Shrikhand (also called Srikhand) is the traditional Indian sweet yogurt flavored with Cardamom and Saffron. The origin of Shrikhand is very old probably before the V Century B.C.: a piece of history on your table! This recipe is great al- day-long as a different brunch, a healthy snack, or a delicious after-meal!
The risotto Milanese is pillar of the Northern Italian cuisine, whose origins are lost in history and legend. The delicate flavor of saffron is combined with the sweet taste of beef marrow bone. Butter and grated Parmigiano Reggiano blend perfectly with the starch rice. The result is a creamy risotto with grains perfectly cooked, but still firm (al dente).
The idea for this risotto came to me a few years ago when I was still living in Bologna. I wanted to combine the classic tradition of risotto with something different, using both meat and fish (which in Italy is not very common). The result was excellent: every time I prepare it, it is a success, both with Italians and friends from other countries. Crispy bacon goes well with the softness of the salmon and the sweetness of the pepper; saffron completes the whole and allows the risotto to become creamy.
