Risotto is an italian dish and I guess should be made with italian rice, dunno which that would be or whether it matters that much. Have you tried googling??

Hi Rita!

No probs to get hold of it - it's arborio rice "Arroz arborio" (same in Italian and Spanish) - easily found in the shops/supermarkets - it's a short grain, rounded and porous rice - just check out the selections on the shelves and you'll see it! Yummy!

And now, whilst we're on cooking - if anyone can let me know of a suitable equivalent to Tate & Lyle's black treacle here in Spain, I'd be most grateful! :D

Thanks,

Well, it's for two things I need it for. My last supply was used up by the end of the holidays, making ginger cakes (you know the ones which have a sticky topping?) and I'll be needing it to make the christmas cake, which I usually make in late October and then "feed" every couple of weeks with brandy to make it really rich. Thanks very much for that, PW - I'll have a hunt for that here (I guess it's what they call molasses elsewhere??) and have a trial run.
