Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups short-grain rice, such as
Cal Rose or Arborio rice
4 cups water
9 1/2 cups milk
3 cups cream
1 1/3 cups sugar
4 vanilla beans -- cut in half
lengthwise and seeds scraped from pod
(use both pod and seeds)
Fresh berries such as blueberries,
blackberries, raspberries and
strawberries, for garnish - (optional)
3/4 cup shelled pistachios -- for garnish,
(optional)

In a large pot, soak rice in water for 1/2 hour. Simmer, uncovered, until
water is absorbed. Allow rice to sit off heat until the consistency of
thick paste.

Add milk, cream, sugar and vanilla; stir to combine. Cook on medium heat
until the consistency of creme anglaise (medium-thick custard sauce).
Cover with plastic wrap while still warm to prevent a skin from forming on
top. Refrigerate overnight.

Presentation: Zov likes to serve this pudding in a large glass bowl
garnished with fresh berries and pistachios.

This recipe yields 12 servings.
