This recipe makes enough for one large portion; being greedy I ate it all. Others may find it plenty for two. Take 75g risotto rice and simmer, stirring, with 550ml milk (I actually found this too large a quantity, I do not like my risottos too runny) and a split vanilla pod. Simmer until tender and then stir in 2 egg yolks and a dash of cream. Delicious suggests adding a drop of rosewater;my addition of orange flower water made little obvious difference to the flavour.
The Rhubarb Compote is simply chopped rhubarb gently simmered with orange juice (2 fresh oranges for 1kg rhubarb), a vanilla pod and caster sugar (2 tbsp). This makes rather a lot but is equally good with yoghurt or over cheesecake.
