Have you ever made Saffron risotto? Well this week we were sent a range of products from Ciao Gusto’s brand Cannamela and I decided to make a delicious Saffron Instant Pot risotto using Zafferano (Saffron) from Cannamela.  

The saffron risotto tasted so good and the whole family loved it. It was my first time to cook Instant Pot risotto and the results were fantastic. I’m excited to share my recipe with you.

I now have a range of Cannamela dried herbs, spices and spice blends to try and it’s exciting to have these new Italian flavours to test out in our Instant Pot. Exciting!
