Making a good risotto isn’t all that easy.
Rice on its own isn’t enough, it doesn’t have any flavor. Onion isn’t enough, it just tastes like onion. Butter isn’t enough, it’s yummy, but you wouldn’t eat a stick of butter
(we hope you wouldn’t, please don’t!) Cheese isn’t enough, although it’s very tasty.
Broth isn’t enough, it’s also pretty lame, and not sexy at all.
Could you imagine a romantic dinner slurping broth?
Quite awkward. A risotto is much better!
So, what makes Risotto so special? It’s not any ingredient on its own, it’s their mix!
It’s the cheese mixing into the broth, mixing in with the rice, mixing in with the onion, mixing in with the butter and the saffron, or the vegetables, or whatever you can think of.
Risotto teaches us that we’re tasty on our own, but together we can be a masterpiece.
Polpette is any kind of food in the shape of a ball.
Don’t you love food shaped as a ball?
You can eat them or you can use polpette to play wonderful games, like football.
You can use polpette for important endeavors
like explaining to Flat-Earthers how the Solar System works.
If you cut a polpetta in half you'll get two little butt cheeks on your plate.
Polpetta is one of the most popular plates in the world, every country makes foodballs with whatever they like. Therefore polpette are a great way to prove that even if we’re different, we’re all the same in the end.
The film “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”
was translated into “It's Raining Falafel” in Israel
The spaghetti meatballs dish served by
the Italian restaurant in “Lady and the Tramp”
isn’t an italian dish at all,
so maybe the two doggos got ripped off.
Anyhow, polpette are lit.
