The preparation of risotto with pears and gorgonzola is simple, but if you want to make dried pears where to have a little patience.

Preparing dried pears cutting the pear into very thin slices, with the mandolin or even using a potato peeler. Put the pear slices on a sheet of parchment paper and then bake at 80 degrees in a static oven for about an hour and 30 minutes, until they are dry and crisp.

Peel the pears and cut them into chunks. Finely chop the onion. Put the onion in a non-stick saucepan together with the oil and sauté gradually adding a little broth. Joining pears, Sauté lightly and add the rice, mix well and making toast evenly. Deglaze with the bubbly and, After the alcohol has evaporated, start cooking rice gradually adding the vegetable stock.

Usual recommendation: stir often and do not add more broth until the previous amount has been completely absorbed. When the rice is cooked,, on the wave, Add the gorgonzola, butter and stir well. Garnish the dish with a sprinkling of lightly toasted pistachio grains, a drizzle of chestnut honey and dried pears. Bon appétit!
