Autumn Risotto Pop Up at 95 Keerom

A prelude to Riva  Restaurant

Young chefs Nicoló Rovarini and Federico Rocca, are relocating to Cape Town to open their own restaurant, Riva, and as a prelude to this, will be creating a once-off risotto menu starting on Monday, 9 April till Saturday, 5 May. There will be a whopping 16 different risotto dishes on offer – four per night, changing weekly – and you’ll want to try them all.

Risotto is the perfect autumn comfort food – rich, earthy, warm and nurturing for when the cooler weather begins to blanket the city.

What to expect at the Autumn Risotto Pop Up at 95 Keerom

The Autumn Risotto Pop Up will showcase different kinds of risotto rice prepared in a wide variety of authentic ways, as handed down in Italian families over many generations. The classic risotto alla Milanese with saffron, the equally famous Italian mushroom risotto, risotto with butternut and goats’ cheese, delicious asparagus risotto with prawns or crispy pancetta, or heavenly risotto with mascarpone and walnuts, are just some of the tasty gems that await you.

We sampled a number of the risottos that will be featured and our favourites included the Il Risotto al Pomodoro e Stracciatella (fresh tomatoes and creamy burrata stracciatella cheese) paired with a glass of Steenberg Nebbiolo and the Il Risotto al Formaggio e Noci (with Taleggio cheese and pecan nuts) paired with Steenberg Semillion.

Known for uncompromising quality, 95 Keerom has been serving authentic Italian dishes that have stood the test of time for the past 15 years. This is old school Italian at its absolute best – delicious, honest food that lets all the ingredients on the plate speak for themselves.

95 Keerom is open for dinner from Monday to Saturday and Friday lunch. For bookings call 021-422 0765 or email info@95keerom.com. Other restaurants within the group include 95 on Parks in Constantia and 95 at Morgenster.
