    Serves 2

    Total Time 1 hour

    Prep Time 15 mins

    Difficulty Level Medium

    Ingredients

    3 cups cold, cooked risotto

    1/2 cup grated Parmesan

    2 tbsps heavy cream

    2 tbsps minced fresh flat-leaf parsley

    1 large egg yolk

    Salt and freshly ground pepper

    5 ounces Brie cheese

    All-purpose flour for dredging

    1 large egg whisked with 2 tbsp water (egg wash)

    Vegetable oil for deep-frying (egg wash)

    2 cups of your favorite tomato sauce

    Directions

    1. In a large bowl, combine the risotto with the Parmesan, cream, herbs, and egg yolk. Season with salt and pepper.

    2. Cut the cheese into 16 cubes. Scoop up about 3 Tbsp of the risotto mixture and pack it around a cube of cheese to make a small ball.

    3. Repeat to form 16 croquettes. Put the flour, egg wash, and bread crumbs in 3 separate bowls.

    4. Dredge the croquettes in the flour, dip in the egg wash, and roll in the bread crumbs. Chill thoroughly, 2-24 hours.

    5. Pour oil into a tall pot to a depth of 5 inches. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it registers 375°F on a deep-frying thermometer.

    6. Deep-fry the croquettes in batches, without crowding, until they are evenly browned, 4-5 minutes.

    7. Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer to paper towels to drain briefly. Serve on a pool of warmed tomato sauce.

    Sonoma-Cutrer’s top priority is always to protect the health and wellness of our guests and employees. Our team has been actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, especially as it relates to Sonoma County, CA. We have decided to suspend all tours and tastings at Sonoma-Cutrer beginning March 14, 2020.

    As we all navigate through this dynamic situation, our goal is to further minimize risk to our valued guests, employees and the potential spread of the virus to their families and communities. While we expect this disruption to our tours and tastings to be temporary, our closure will remain in place until this health emergency subsides and officials declare it safe to resume normal activity.
