Hi everyone! My name is Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean is my food blog I’ve been writing for nine years. I live in beautiful Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where I happily whip up delicious creations in my little green kitchen. Being a chef as well as a food writer and recipe developer, I’m lucky to have turned my passion for all things food into a career I love. I’m in the midst of working on my second cookbook: Vegetables: A Love Story, and it will be released in the fall of 2021. The last several months have been very busy, and I’m so proud of the work I’ve done so far. In case you’re wondering, yes, there will be a chapter devoted to Mushrooms and I can’t wait for you to see those delicious recipes. Free time (remind me what that is again) includes Netflix, reading, and spending time with my guy Dixon and four cats.
My name is Alisa Infanti and I am the recipe developer and food photographer for The Delicious Spoon. I live in Hamilton, Ontario and am a wife and mom of two so I understand how important it is to be able make a meal for my family that is as easy to make as it is delicious!
As a kid you couldn’t get me to eat a mushroom. I mean in school they tell you it is a fungus and then well, that was game over for me. It wasn’t until I was at my friend’s home for dinner and their parents served mushrooms in a pasta dish and my mother’s rule “eat what is put in front of you” rang in my head. So down the hatch that mushroom went and I have been a fan ever since. I love the subtle woody and earthy flavour and meaty texture of mushrooms and now add them into my recipes whenever I can.
We have guests in the Kitchen! Loreto & Nicoletta of SugarLoveSpices are sharing their simply divine recipe for a mushroom and lobster risotto!
This dish is a luxurious plate full of flavour, texture, and aroma. Your first spoonful will reveal this creamy rice with hints of tomato and white wine, rounded with the plump earthy flavour of mushroom, alongside sweet onion and garlic. We cannot forget those juicy tender pieces of lobster that tell your taste buds THIS IS IT!
