    Sal: Hi, I am Sal from, the chef of Pomodoro in Fairfax. We just finished up our mushroom risotto, as you can see right here. We are just going to talk a little bit about it. We actually serve it in a family style, but what you can do with it is actually, serve it individually, like separate the dish literally, add a little bit of grilled chicken to the side, and you saut some vegetables, and add that to this side. Thats a great party meal. Obviously, you are just going to want a little glass of wine on this side, and you could do a little white, or you could do a little red. I mean thats actually your call, your preference. I wouldnt do a beer, thats for sure, but the wine helps. All I can say is enjoy the dish. I mean thats one of my favorites. Bon Appetite.
