Fantastic Firsts, Acquerello Rice, Chef Michele Deleo, Rossellinis Ristorante, Ravello (Sa)

I must admit that when this dish arrived at my table I couldn't help but smile as well as appreciate Chef Michele Deleo's  love and respect for the flavors and products of the Amalfi Coast. The chef's Il Riso Acquerello/Acquerello Rice. The first thing I noticed was the bright yellow color.  That color thanks to the sunny sweet yellow cherry tomatoes from the nearby town of Corbara which the chef used to not only cook the rice in,  but also prepared a soft bed of tomato gelatin for the fresh seafood he delicately placed on top.  Other local specialties include flavorful fior di latte from Agerola and a compote of Amalfi lemons.
A sprinkling of liquirizia di mare on top...
Fantastic.
