The rosé wine "Winter en Provence" goes well with Rizotto and squid.
Preparation - 10 mins; cooking - 30 min.
For 2 persons: 2 squid * 1 onion * 125 g of rice * 30 g of butter * 2 tablespoons of olive oil * salad leaves and fresh parsley * Parmesan cheese * salt and pepper
Melt butter in sauce pan. Add dry rice and brown it for a few minutes while stirring.
Add boiling water (equivalent to the volume of rice) and cook gently until the rice has absorbed the water.
