Cooking Demo Recipe: Risotto with Garlic Scapes & Bacon
The Hollywood Farmers Market thanks Blake Van Roekel, Keuken, and Slow Food Portland for a fantastic cooking demo last Saturday! blake at the cooking demo

Blake demonstrated how to make a deliciously seasonal and affordable Risotto with most ingredients coming right from the market. Try this one at home--garlic scapes won't be in season for much longer!

Risotto with Garlic Scapes & Bacon

By Blake Van Roekel
Keuken · www.goodkeuken.com
Risotto is an incredibly versatile and economical dish. Rice is first sautéed in fat to encapsulate and help seal the grain. Stock and wine are added gradually while stirring to create that classic, creamy texture unique to this dish. Risotto is best served immediately. However, leftover rice can be shaped into patties or balls and fried.
2-3 shallots, chopped (Deep Roots Farm)
1/4 lb bacon ends, cut into quarter inch pieces (Sweet Briar Farms)
1 1/2 cups garlic scapes, chopped (Gales Meadow Farm)
3 cloves garlic, minced (Winter Green Farm)
4 tablespoon butter
2 cups arborio rice
1 cup white wine, room temperature (Laurel Ridge Winery)
6 cups of vegetable or chicken stock
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated (other hard cheeses can substitute)
Salt (to taste)

1. Prepare your ingredients as you heat the stock.

2. In a straight-sided sauté pan, melt the butter.

3. Add the bacon and cook until the fat is rendered and the bacon is browned.

4. Add the shallots and reduce the heat to low. Salt, cover and sweat the shallots until they are translucent with no browning.

5. Add garlic scapes and cook for 3-5 minutes.

6. Add the minced garlic and cook for less than one minute.

7. Add the rice and stir the grains to coat with the bacon fat and butter. Let the grain absorb some of the fat, turning it slightly translucent. This step will take about 4 minutes.

8. Add a ladleful of hot stock, stirring until it has been absorbed. Follow with the wine. Continue adding the stock slowly in this manner until each addition is absorbed. You may not need to add all of the stock. Add salt to taste as you go. This will take approximately 18-20 minutes.

9. When done, the rice grains will be tender to the bite and the texture will be creamy. Season and sprinkle with parmesan. Let this dish sit off the heat for a couple of minutes before serving. Serves 6-8.
