This risotto was my mother’s surprise, when she arrived home in fact I found this delicacy and she told me: “Have you already made this risotto? No? Here it is then.”
I only had to photograph it and eat it, very good!!
My mother used the Calabrian oregano that she brings from her village every year, and it is quite another thing, very fragrant.
Besides, it’s one of those comfort food recipes that I immediately connect to my childhood.
I won’t hold you any longer and I’ll run for lunch.
I leave you with the recipe for tomato and oregano risotto.
See you for the next recipe!
