A Cheese Basket, Filled with Risotto

A cheese basket is a bowl or dish made out of cheese that you can fill with pasta (with a not-too-liquid sauce), risotto, gnocchi, or even stew.

Cheese baskets are easy to make, and make for a beautiful presentation; they're nice for a change of pace, and perfectly suited to a romantic occasion. Here we have a cheese basket filled with risotto, made by Mirko Margheri, Chef of Florence's Ristoroante Oliveiero (in Via delle Terme, behind Santa Trinita).
