Beetroot Risotto Recipe From Coppinger Row for Peroni Gluten Free Restaurant Week

Peroni Gluten Free Restaurant Week is in full swing, and from 5th February to Sunday 11th February a number of Ireland’s leading restaurants will be serving a special dish free from gluten, to be served with a Peroni Gluten Free.

Each special dish has been inspired by Italy and has been designed to complement Peroni’s Gluten Free beer, for a bespoke gluten free dining experience. The ever popular city centre hotspot Coppinger Row is taking part in this celebration of gluten free goodness and has created a special dish of Beetroot Risotto with Goats Cheese and Walnuts to mark the occasion.

If you can’t make it to Coppinger Row, they have shared this gorgeous gluten free recipe for you to try at home, with a Peroni Gluten Free to cut across the rich, earthiness of this indulgent dish perfectly.
