This delectable spring dish, a soup with fresh pea pod stock, fresh peas and rice, was once served with great pomp and ceremony to the Magnificent Doge of Venice - the elected head of the powerful city state. It was usuallly served on the 25th of April, the feast of the patron saint of the city, San Marco. This was traditionally the day when the very first peas of the season went on sale in the Rialto market

        I love it! I made it and served it with Visionario, 2009, Bianco Delle Venezie (an IGT). What a find. We had just received the wine we ordered from Italy through the Wall Street Journal and I pulled it immediately and refrigerated it for dinner! The Risi e Bisi was fantastic! I used Sugar Snap Peas and made the pea pod puree and added it just before finishing the dish, how marvelous. It is so beautiful, such a bright Spring Green!! A hit with our guests. I will make this again.
