Gammon and Vegetable Risotto

Psychedelic risotto!  This is what risotto looked like in the 1970s when Vincent wrote Cooking Price-wise.  It reminded me of something else I remember from the 1970s.  Batchelors Savoury Rice.

I’ve been feeling weird about Vincent this week.  The Vincentennial is almost over – it began on the 27th May so in theory this project ends a week today.  What a strange feeling.  I’m not sure if I will be able to let it go…

It feels as though the last thing I make for the project should be something really special.  But what?  And for what occasion?  This needs something that I am not very good at…  Planning…

Recipe from: Cooking Price-Wise.
