Yesterday, after I had attended an absolutely fantastic exhibition of art called ArtAthina (it was my first time but such a great experience!!), I went with my newly acquired french-speaking friends, exhibitors themselves, to a very beautiful greek restaurant to try some seafood! Although I had never been there before, I can tell you, it was the smartest move for that evening.
You see, while checking on the menu, I actually spotted a dish I hadn’t eaten for quite some time, a Black Rice Risotto With Cuttlefish! Honestly? I couldn’t have made a better choice! It tasted soooo good, that I can still feel it in my mouth! Therefore, I decided to make a post for this recipe and a Black Rice Risotto With Cuttlefish is what I give you for you today! You will absolutely love it!!
Of course, wine was included! A greek wine to be exact! It’s called “ΠΑΡΑΓΚΑ” and it is a white wine made from the greek varieties of Roditis and Malagouzia! It’s light and it is just the perfect choise for this dish!
