Seasonal ingredients are top of mind in a gourmet meal we’ve “arranged” for you and someone special! Settle in at home for three courses that focus on all things fall…
Delicious diver scallops, or “Capesante,” from Executive Chef Danny Trace with Potente in Houston. Plated on a bed of crushed corn risotto in a shellfish broth, garnished with fresh herbs.
This risotto at Badia a Coltibuono was one of my all time faves. Keep in mind, the pecorino in Tuscany is FRESH, not pasteurized, and therefore has much more flavor and texture.
Carmelo was born in Taormina, Sicily and moved to Houston in 1978 with his wife Hilary and their eldest daughter Luisa. In 1985, they opened their first Carmelo’s Ristorante on Memorial Drive in Houston. Enjoy his luscious Lemon Risotto featuring Alaskan King Salmon and jumbo lump crab meat.

I encourage my fellow foodies and wine enthusiasts to attend one of Houston’s finest culinary festivals…the 10th International Risotto Festival!
