Recipe: Cajun rice with thyme

The 12 first courses lunch
April 29, 2011

After the green and yellow rice recipes, this is the third colored rice served at the 12 first courses lunch: a red risotto, inspired by the rich Cajun cuisine.

This is a recipe from the 12 first courses lunch, so the doses are for small samples. Keep that in mind if you are considering only one first course.
