Popped into Rippon Cheese Stores in Pimlico today on the way into work, surprisingly this is the only place I could find in London now selling a vegetarian Parmesan style cheese (Twineham Grange in this case, which I happen to think is a particularly good one). It used to be easy to find in supermarkets, I don't know why it now seems to have all but disappeared.
Used this to make a risotto bianco, which I topped with some of the white asparagus Chie had brought back from Berlin. I'm not sure I really cooked the asparagus perfectly - I did peel it as I believe you're supposed to, and gave it a lot longer than I would for the green variety, but still some bits were a bit tough. Still, the risotto itself came out rather well - both Chie and Erika seemed to like it - so I think I can overall declare it a successful meal.
