“Ukulele Risotto with Mushroom and Wild Garlic – Served With Crusty Bread.

When George Gordon (the 6th Lord Byron) went to Italy in 1817 he was going there for the Renaissance Art, the Comedia dell’arte, but, mostly, he went there for the sapore, that is the ‘flavours’ of the Italian food.

With the delicious tang of la belle dame (a type of Italian cheese) running through his veins, George was inspired to write his famous ‘Don Juan’, and also his not so famous ‘Don Tu (Want Me Baby).

George was often heard roaming the streets of Italy’s capital reciting lines from his comical poem, ‘Foccacio, Fellatio, Fidelio’.

Recently George Gordon’s diaries from this time have been discovered and it seems that his favourite of all the Italian dishes was, ‘Ukulele Risotto with Mushroom and Wild Garlic – Served With Crusty Bread.’

Isn’t that Byronic?
