Spelt Risotto with Beets and Horseradish

Heston Blumenthal

Switch up your classic risotto with nutty spelt, sweet beets, and horseradish for that extra kick.Todd Coleman

Heston Blumenthal, chef at the Fat Duck in Bray, England, gave us the recipe for this dish, which was inspired by his trip to Transylvania. Blumenthal substitutes spelt, a wheat berry found in most supermarkets, for the more common short-grain rice to give the risotto a nutty flavor and a toothsome bite.
