Spring Risotto Night

It’s the perfect match: Rich and comforting, yet bright and light, this week’s risotto-themed box is a beautiful blend of fresh flavors. Have fun experimenting in the kitchen with all the provisions for a risotto accented by our housemade chicken stock, easy-to-make preserved Meyer lemons and your choice of toppings, plus Pain au Levain bread, France’s signature Pommery mustard, farm-fresh eggs and spring favorites such as spinach, pea shoots, radishes, beets and fragrant herbs. Enjoy!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
