Make your own risotto

Back by popular demand

7 Apr 2013

Last Sunday there was a delicious risotto workshop at Mediamatic Fabriek. Preparing this creamy traditional rice dish is all about being patient. And knowing a few clever tricks. Chefs Andrea Sossi and Robert Bochove learned the ins and outs of making a scrumptious risotto.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The Fabriek is situated in the Van Gendthallen on Oostenburg, Amsterdam. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks and other makers have been given the possibility to claim part of this space as their own. They work autonomously from their workshop- or project space, but like in any other community, materials, space, and functions have to be shared. Favela citizens are making tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and food from our aquaponics farm. They give workshops, organize get-togethers, and serve food.
