I just bought some nice arborrio and some nice bomboa rice. Can't decide which one to go with tonight for a small dinner get together.

If you have the right pan, and a wood heat source, the paella is the way to go.

 

No matter how good the risotto is, it's gonna look like a pile of baby food on the plate.

Paella is a meal, and risotto is a ricelike niblet.

What's wrong with you?

It’s a little like the would you eat raw chicken thread...

So you're telling me you have lobster or scallop risotto with generous portions of seafood and that isn't a meal? My buddy got pork bolognese risotto at a place we went to the other day as a meal that was unreal. You're all off the blog mailing list! NO SOUP FOR YOU.

Then it's scallop risotto, or lobster risotto, but plain risotto is a ricelike niblet.

You're starting to aggrevate me.

as Jase said, the pan is everything. if you don't got the pan and create that crunchiness underneath, then it pretty much is a Risotto anyway

 

fwiw I'd make Jambalaya before I'd try a risotto.

 

top chef back on tomorrow night btw.
