t-day cranberry risotto

An eyelash bat and the Holidays are here!
This is the Thanksgiving Day week for all our American friends celebrating around the world 🙌
As we are often asked for some menu suggestions, today we are sharing our recipe for our cranberry risotto aka the top risotto for  turkey day 👌

Before we head over to the recipe and the wine pairings, we would like to include a short note about cranberries for all our friends who happen to have access to them but have never really bought or tried them.

As one of the native fruits of North America, cranberries are a vital ingredient of the T-day dinner menu and thanks to their many nutritional properties, they have many good benefits for our bodies.  Fresh and dry, they can be used in a variety of recipes, both sweet and savory. Enjoy this short clip about North American cranberries, reminding you they differ from those grown in the European wetlands.
