Mattias Roock – Executive chef Hotel Castello del Sole

INGREDIENTS for 4 people
400 g green asparagus
50 ml olive oil
260 g Loto risotto rice (from our fields)
50 g shallot finely chopped
150 ml white Merlot wine
700 ml asparagus fond/vegetable bouillon
50 g butter
50 g mascarpone
80 g grated parmesan
1 Yuzu lemon (Asiatic citrus fruit form our garden)
50 g spring herbs from our garden
   
  Salt and pepper
PREPARATION
  • Cut the final end of asparagus and peel ¾,
    then cut pieces of approx. 1 cm and do not cut the asparagus tips
  • Cook the asparagus pieces and tips in salted water
  • Steam the shallots in olive oil
  • Add the washed Loto risotto and fry it for a moment
  • Add the white Merlot wine and reduce slightly
  • Step by step add the asparagus fond/vegetable bouillon, stir constantly
    cook for approx. 12-15 minutes and add salt and pepper
  • When the risotto is al dente remove it from the heat, add asparagus, butter, mascarpone and grated parmesan
  • Let it rest for 2-3 minutes, if necessary add spices,
    to conclude add the peel and juice of Yuzu lemon
  • Serve the risotto in hot plates and garnish with the asparagus tips and spring herbs
  • This is a very important point, because it is the only way to gain its perfect, creamy texture and should still be al dente!

 

TIP
  • Parmesan chips as garnishing
