Risotto al salto at La Bettola di Piero, Milano
One of my favourite Milanese dishes is risotto al salto, made by pan-frying leftover saffron risotto with a little of butter and some grated Parmigiano Reggiano. And where can you find it better than at a simple, traditional, family-owned trattoria like La Bettola di Piero (Via Orti, 17, 20122 Milano, Italy; tel. +39 02 5518 4947), located in a quite residential area and thus mostly frequented by the locals. It was still puntarelle (a type of chicory) season when I was in Milan few weeks ago, so having them as a starter with some salted anchovies sauce was a must.
