Has anyone made the recipes from his show? We did the risotto with Grana Padano and beer. I would have passed this right by if I had only read the recipe but given his enjoyment ... well, we tried it and it was amazing.
Piedmont, in northwest Italy, is all about risotto. Stanley Tucci traveled to one of the best places to try it in Vercelli, Italy's rice capital. Tucked at the back of Hotel Cinzia, Christian and Manuel Restaurant is run by two brothers who give this dish a modern twist.
