“Rizogalo” – Rice pudding

ελληνικα

This recipe is especially made for my friend Socrates. And for all of you that want to try the Greek dessert ‘rizogalo’ or else the Greek version of rice pudding. ‘Rizogalo’ is a humble yet delicious dessert, made easily with what most people have always in their kitchen; milk, sugar, rice. In Greece it is a dessert that would most likely get treated by in a house than in an expensive restaurant. And this is not in terms of taste but in terms of level of difficulty/experience needed in order to make it. For that reason I was completely amazed to see it served (and highly credited) in a restaurant in France taking into account the attention French people pay into their “cuisine”..
