Avondale Sky – Chocolate Risotto

During our great adventure to Nova Scotia's Wine Country for Episode 109 of SEA AND BE SCENE TV - I had the chance to visit Avondale Sky.

On a cold February day we were taken in by the beautiful setting, the warm 'church' and the welcoming owners Stewart Creaser and Lorraine Vassalo.

What you didn't see however - was me enjoying Lorraine's lovely Chocolate Risotto.  So perfect with their Avondale Sky Pinnacle Hill Ice Wine... I'm still dreaming about.

I can however share their recipe with great gratitude and recommend you to pick up a bottle of Avondale Sky to go with!

Thanks Lorraine - you're right sweet!!! SABS

1 Tablespoon butter

1 cup Carnaroli or Arborio rice

4 cups of milk

3/4 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

2 oz Bakers unsweetened chocolate, chopped

In a heavy bottomed pot, melt butter.

Add rice and stir to coat.

Heat milk almost to a simmer and keep warm.

Add milk, one ladle-full at a time to the rice and stir until absorbed.

Continue until rice is cooked and creamy - most of all of the milk will be used.

Stir in sugar and vanilla.

Add the cocoa and stir until completely distributed.

Add the chopped chocolate and stir again until evenly distributed.

Serves 4
