    Hi, my name is Sam Brosino. I am one of the owners of Pomodoro in Fairfax. We've been in this business for about eight years now with my two brothers. We do Italian cuisine. I am a graduate of the French Culinary Institute. Today, we are going to do my favorite dish, which is Porcini Mushroom Risotto. We are going to be talking a little bit about the preparation of the dish, and why we prep it, and how are we going to prep it, and why we are doing what we are doing. We are going to talk a little bit about safety. Thats about it. Come and join me. Lets do it.
