      We liked this. It's very, very rich. This was my first time using annatto. I might have even upped the proportion of annatto and sage in this recipe. The taste of the porcini and sun dried tomato were quite pronounced, but in a good way. Thanks for a nice comforting meal.

      I like orzo, and this was a very good way to enjoy it. Lacking annato seed, I subbed with saffron threads for a smoky taste and good colour. Very easily prepared even if it looks like quite a few steps, we all enjoyed this, even my husband who is not usually a fan of risottos or orzo dishes. I find it good comfort food :) Thank you, LIG!
