Chicken Big Mamou on Rice

Chicken Big Mamou is a recipe from Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen. My aunt Marjorie used to make this dish. She modified it, instead of one pound of butter, she uses 4 tablespoons and she also scaled back the cayenne. My cousin (in-law) Lisette made this for us last summer. She is a phenomenal cook and sent me her modifications. The original recipe is served over pasta, but I like it over rice.

Wild Mushroom Risotto

A friend of mine asked for a risotto recipe that you don't have to laboriously stir. I make this all the time. You start it on the stove top and transfer it to the oven. Risotto is a class of Italian dishes of rice cooked in broth to a creamy consistency. Many types of risotto contain Parmesan cheese, butter, and onion. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy. Properly cooked risotto is rich and creamy but still with some resistance or bite: al dente, and with separate grains. The traditional texture is fairly fluid. It is served on flat dishes and it should easily spread out but not have excess watery liquid around the perimeter. It must be eaten at once as it continues to cook in its own heat and can become too dry with the grains too soft.
