The cookbook author and co-star of the limited series Bobby and Giada in Italy, took to her Giadzy Instagram (where the profile picture just happens to be a lemon) to share her creative and entertaining tip, writing: “The cutest way to serve up risotto for any spring affairs… inside of a lemon cup.” You should definitely check out the recipe, but De Laurentiis also demonstrates in the video post how easy it is to hollow out your lemons by scooping out the fleshy fruit, which you should save for a later use, to create these bright colored lemon cups. Once all the fruit has been removed, she fills them with her creamy risotto and it looks ah-mazingly delicious.
Her followers clearly agreed and were equally impressed. One typed, “The only problem I see is the little cups don’t hold enough yummy risotto!” While another shared, “Beautiful and different way to serve (and eat) an Italian delicatesse.” We couldn’t agree more. These lemon cups are so clever, they will definitely be the focal point of your meal. So, get to scooping and in the immortal words of De Laurentiis, “Mangia!”
