Mushroom orzo risotto (kritharoto), Irene’s workshop

March 19, 2015
Incredible pasta from Irene’s workshop in Kastanas, Thessaloniki


Due to a recent branding change, Irene’s workshop has launched a new line of pasta made with the purest raw ingredients, without any additives.

The new product range includes vegetable tagliatelle, linguini, kritharoto, pasta shells, vegetable couscous, trahana, hilopites and a number of other types of pasta in various flavours.

The one I was drawn to was the mushroom and truffle oil kritharoto which cooked as you would a risotto, with the addition of some onions, made for a great dish.  Its best attributes are the deeply earthy pasta taste and its unique texture.
