This woodsy risotto would be at home on the menu of a gourmet restaurant. Barley gives a chewier, less creamy risotto than does rice.

Normally caprese salad is made in the summer months with fresh ripe tomatoes. For the rest of the year when tomatoes may not be at their best, a great way to develop tomato flavour is to slowly oven-roast them, as we do here.
