bomba di riso

pigeon and rice 'bomb'

Bomba di riso

A classic in the Duchy of Parma since the 16th century, and considered one of the region's top rice dishes: pigeon is marinated, braised, and deboned, then mixed with onions, mushrooms and spices in a rich sauce, and layered inside a cheesy risotto-lined dome, topped with breadcrumbs and baked.
