Yesterday, instead of cooking the dinner myself, I had the pleasure of watching (and photographing) as others prepared a wonderful seafood feast.
Venetian black rice served as the elegant foundation for a rich, savory risotto.
Other ingredients included fish (cod and drum),
squid, clams and shrimp.
Lots of hands helped with the preparation;
there was a lot of chopping to be done.
In the end it all came together with the help of some champagne
and the use of many pans
into an amazing dish.
The perfect end to a wonderful day.
